Obama on Getting Freelancers Paid #FreelanceIsntFree

Posted by Ilise Benun on

I love this exchange about freelancing between President Obama and Sara Horowitz, Founder of Freelancers Union, now 300,000 strong (join now — it’s free), who was in Washington DC last week advocating for freelancers (with the hashtag #FreelanceIsntFree)

I especially love how Obama acknowledged, right off the bat, that he hadn’t given much thought to how to prevent freelancers from being stiffed (he admittedly has lots of important issues to deal with) and then proceeded to brainstorm some ideas on the spot. Read more about it here and watch the clip….

Also, the Freelancers Union and Upwork recently released Freelancing in America: 2015, their latest survey results on the current state of freelancing.

Browse through the detailed deck below or read about it here and in Sara’s column on Fast Company.
