Are you ready to stop living paycheck to paycheck? Do you want to own your time? Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft offer a new world of opportunities for millions of people, but no one knows where to start. Life gets busy, the bills stack up, and instruction manuals aren't provided. Just a few years ago, Mukon Ngoyi wore these same shoes: working three jobs, struggling to pay the rent. These days, she's one of the highest rated drivers around, earns $90,000 a year, and is known as the "Hustlin' Hummingbird" of the rideshare game. Making it to the top wasn't easy, though, and now, Mukon is ready to share the hard lessons she learned on the road. Her debut book, Hustlin' Hummingbird, is not only about her own rags-to-riches story, and not just a tale of female strength and perseverance, but also a guidebook for how people from all walks of life can follow her road to success. Mukon outlines everything an aspiring driver--or a curious rider--needs to know about the rideshare business, and explains how you can transform it from an occasional hobby into a moneymaking career that YOU control. Buckle your seatbelt. Start the ignition. Hustlin' Hummingbird is the book you've been waiting for.

The crowdsourcing of work - the 'gig economy' - has been hailed as a 'sharing' revolution, enabling 'micro-entrepreneurs' to enjoy greater autonomy and flexibility in taking on 'gigs', 'rides', or 'tasks', while customers benefit from the ease, convenience, and affordability of 'work on demand'. Is this the future of work? What are the benefits and challenges of crowdsourced work? Is the gig economy fundamentally different to existing models of work and should it be kept outside the scope of employment law, as many platforms claim? Humans as a Service offers an engaging and critical account of the gig economy. It charts the industry's dramatic growth, explores the diverse platforms that comprise it, and describes how they operate. In scrutinising the competing narratives about 'gig' work, the book demonstrates the importance of language: how claims of 'disruptive innovation' and 'micro-entrepreneurship' often obscure the realities of highly precarious work and the strict algorithmic surveillance and control to which workers are subject. And yet, far from being radically new, the book shows that the gig economy is but the latest (and perhaps most extreme) example of labour market practices that have existed for centuries. Turning to how the law should respond to the on-demand economy, it argues that regulators can and must bring this work within the scope of employment law, adapting existing norms where necessary, in order to protect both customers and workers. Finally, it explores the wider implications of the gig economy for markets and consumers, assessing oppprtunities and challenges - if this is the future of work, how can it be made sustainable?
