  1. Kindly share your point of view on creating a community of domestic Gig Workers

India as a country has more than 10 million domestic workers and has no access to basic living conditions/wages or any sense of financial inclusion. This untapped audience is widely segregated and unshattered and if provided a strategic way forward can be streamlined to boost and contribute to the economic development of India.

In order to avoid exploitation of the gig workers we believe that the voices of the workers should be heard. In order to get this right, it’s important to create policies that represent the rights of the gig workers. Pandemic taught us the importance of life over anything else, however, the gig workers have limited job security whereas most of them are exploited and not even paid wages for their hard work. Additionally, there is no specific infrastructure for creating an ecosystem for gig workers to grow and prosper. Till the time there is no community building in the making and everyone doesn’t understand the challenges faced, it would be impossible to streamline and uplift the economy.

Therefore, providing services at the right time and as fast as possible has emerged as the need of the hour for companies to be a success. The change in consumer behavior and the dependency of technology has given rise to on-demand services. Consumers can place their requests and through the help of technology, they are suggested the best matches according to their preference and filters. The consumers can then select the right person for the job basis their filtered process and the services will be available within an hour at max. The growth of on-demand service has filled a wide gap that was previously impossible to fill and has also saved a lot of hassle in finding the right person. The popularity of on-demand services is increasing due to their capacity to cater to every financial segment of society. Moreover, this also brings financial flexibility for people, and that is achieved by serving as an on-demand staff. Working officials are usually busy during the work week and can enjoy these services while saving a lot of time for themselves. The on-demand service has filled a wide gap that was previously possible with a large paycheck and has also saved a lot of hassle in finding the right person.
