As the freelance economy continues to grow, a number of industries have emerged as top employers, and they may not be the ones you typically associate with freelancing.

The freelance economy is a diverse ecosystem filled with skilled employees of a wide variety of backgrounds. Nearly 54 million Americans are now part of this growing ecosystem, according to a study by the Freelancers Union, and a study by Intuit predicts that 40% of the American workforce will be comprised of freelancers, contractors, and temporary employees by 2020.
