The New Freelance Economy

Nov 29, 2012

Up to one-third of working adults in the United States are independent contractors. Do you have what it takes to make it on your own? Freelancers Union founder Sara Horowitz joins us to talk about how independent workers are changing the national job landscape and what you need to know before joining the ranks of the self-employed.

Also this hour: the US Supreme Court is expected to decide tomorrow whether it will wade into the same-sex marriage debate in the coming months. We check in with Harvard legal historian Michael Klarman. Plus, we look at the fight against "patent trolls" and Marcie Sillman talks with Rose Cano, artistic director of Seattle bilingual theater company eSe Teatro.
