The 'gig economy' is the future of the labour market according to many companies coming out of America's Silicon Valley. But is flexibility at the cost of security really what the 'millennial' generation want? Edwin Lane speaks to Leah Busque, the founder of gig economy pioneer TaskRabbit, and to Miguel McKelvey, founder of WeWork - the firm that caters to a growing army of young freelance workers. And Steven Hill, author of Raw Deal: How the Uber Economy and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers, explains how workers' rights could be at risk. Plus, Sarah Treanor speaks to Jen Glantz, professional bridesmaid for hire. (Photo: Uber in Spain; Credit: Getty Images)
