From the outside looking in, it’s easy to make snap judgments about the gig economy. The biggest jobs are driving for Uber. It’s a millennial thing. There’s no money in it.While there might be a kernel of truth in each, the gig economy is bigger and more complicated than many people realize, especially people who’ve never worked for themselves or held a gig job.For a reality check on what the gig economy is - and what it isn’t - I talked to Marion McGovern, a long-time management consultant and author of “Thriving in the Gig Economy,” published July 24 by Career Press.McGovern started in the gig economy well before it was known by that name. Her previous company, M Squared Consulting, placed independent experts with client projects. For the book, she tapped into her own experiences and researched the latest data and thinking on gig work and workers. She also tested some of the online freelance platforms that have materialized to match gig … [Read more...] about What you think you know about gig work could be all wrong

ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Richard Kelly gets agitated when he talks about the three days last March when he was held against his will at St. Cloud Hospital. In his human services career, Kelly has helped commit mentally ill people for involuntary treatment. Last year the tables turned: Family members and officials considered him for commitment through a 72-hour hold and courthouse hearing. The hospital visit troubled Kelly and widened rifts in his family. He felt the experience robbed him of his liberty and cast doubt on his sanity. And he's sought vindication since. "I was an inmate," Kelly told The St. Cloud Times . "I advocated for myself or I would have been railroaded."
