Gig economy curriculum for adult basic skills learners?

     Hello LINCS Colleagues,

     Below are two important questions that you may be able to help me with:

1. Do your students work in the "gig economy"? That is, do they have part-time or full-time work without benefits, but with work schedules over which they have some conrol? For example LYft or Uber drivers, self-employed landscaping businesses, etc. If so, what are the gig economy jobs they have, and in what state?

2. Do you use, or know of, a curriculum suitable for adult basic skills (including English language) learners that addresses opportunities and risks in "gig economy" work?

Reply here, or to me privately.  Thanks!
