In an article for Forbes on the continuing gender wage disparity, Senior Contributor, Tom Spiggle, wrote, “Over the past few decades, this gender pay gap has been narrowing.

We’re seeing a mass exodus of people from the 9 to 5 workaday world. In fact, according to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, “There are now 9.44 million unincorporated self-employed workers—up over 500,000 since the start of the pandemic.” People want to be in charge of their own life. They want to get away from bureaucracy and spend more time with family. They want a fluid and flexible schedule. They want to do work that matters.
