The future of the workforce will not be more flexible because once people realize the disadvantages of freelancing they will understand that “being their own boss” is not worth it.
Freelancers subject themselves to unreliable workloads. Most freelancers have an unsteady income and a workload that is inconsistent.
For the most part, they can not depend on any regular project, profit, or client; it is all unpredictable.
Freelancers also don't reap the benefits of traditional workers. Health benefits are very expensive and are mainly provided through workplaces.
Depending on a freelancers' current health, switching to a freelance lifestyle may be against their best interests.
Freelancing also increases the chances of unequal compensation.
The prices for projects are usually set by the employers and that could mean earning less than a traditional employee would earn for completing the job.
The future of the workforce will be dominated by standard and conventional jobs because the disadvantages of freelancing will slow down freelance economy growth.
