MARCH 8, 2019
The recent government shutdown drove gig economy growth, but what does it all mean? After 35 days of political deadlock and disagreements across party lines, the most recent United States government shutdown that started on December 22, 2018 and came to an end on January 26th was the longest and costliest federal shutdown in U.S. Hundreds of thousands of government employees and contractors were furloughed or ordered to work without pay.
