The boom of the moment: portals for freelancers

But if there is a niche with a growing number of job offers, that is the freelancers, a sector that seems to anticipate what will be our future job. A tendency that comes to adapt to two realities that are increasingly present in our job market: on the one hand, the workers who, voluntarily or forced, bet on building their future work from working for several companies (which they become customers); on the other hand, that of companies that decide not to take risks on indefinite contracts or that they need personnel only for specific projects.And is that, according to the data that Adecco

And is that, according to the data it handles, in 2014 there were in Spain a total of 56,269 job offers aimed at self-employed, an increase of 4.38% compared to the statistics for 2013. In addition, Infojobs ensures that that same year its portal hosted about 60,000 job offers for freelancers, which makes up 13% within all of its catalog of offers. In fact, since the crisis began in 2008, companies have multiplied by 12 their vacancies for this type of workers.

The problem: precariousness and black money

However, the special boom of these job offers has its particular negative side: the precariousness and the submerged economy. And it is that in this sector will depend on each case, but it is no secret that a percentage (not major but significant) of these offers implies a reduction of conditions and labor rights to such an extent that rubs the precariousness.In addition, depending on the offer in question, we can find small jobs that, because of their reduced volume, carry a salary that causes the company and employee to agree to perform such work in a submerged way, with black money and unpaid this task.Because if a worker gets a commission of $1,000 he is likely to decide to register and bill it according to law; however, if the amount varies between $50 and $200, for example, it is clear that both the company and the worker in question will ask if such an offer deserves to be spent by the State.
