  • 1. Online Employment Situation Summary A companion to the Employment Situation Summary issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Online Employment Data courtesy of oDesk, the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for online work Non-traditional "contract" workers make up more than one-third of the US workforce, a segment growing at twice the rate of the standard workforce (source: Human Capital Institute). Online work - also commonly referred to as remote, contract, freelance or contingent work - is fast becoming a mainstream alternative to full-time employment. More than 90% of U.S. firms now use contract talent on a regular basis and are spending $120 billion on it each year. oDesk, the world's largest and fastest-growing marketplace for online work, connects employers with hundreds of thousands of skilled workers.
