‘1 million for work flexibility’

In the UK there has been much debate about the so-called gig economy, zero hours contracts, and flexible working.  I have blogged about how it is perceived to be undesirable by some politicians, employers and trades unions here in the UK.  So it is interesting to see  a different perspective from the USA.

I million for work flexibility (1MFWF) is a US-based pressure group calling for more flexibility in the work place (website here).  They are in favour of this because according to them it provides “work-life balance, better health, greater productivity, more availability for our families, less stress, stronger local job economy, more time to volunteer, reduced commutes, environmental concerns”.  Make up your own mind…
