"Independent workers (e.g., freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, temps, part-timers, contingent employees and the self-employed) comprise more than 30 percent of [North] America's workforce today, and that number is growing rapidly. Now, with offerings made available through Freelancers Union, independent workers across the country will have increased access to health care benefits traditionally available through employer-sponsored plans.
Throughout its 11 year history, New York City-based Freelancers Union has been a pioneer and catalyst for change in the movement to address the needs of the nation's new workforce. Freelancers Union has received more than $7 million in support for their social entrepreneurial efforts from the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, among others."
