Twitter Web App : Work with Teodora Boneva Marta Golin C.Rauh shows that those on flexible, insecure work arrangements have been hit harder economically by the Covid crisis --- we need to think very hard about how to generate more secure jobs in the recovery

Twitter Web App : There has been big growth in the share of flexible & non-salaried vacancies over time, especially at low wages 4/n
