National Today * National Freelancers Day – March 10, 2024  * Mar_1010


There hasn’t been a day dedicated to the United States freelance community until now. National Freelancers Day, celebrated on the second Friday in March, was created by Robinhood and offers an opportunity to appreciate freelancers for their hard work that often goes unnoticed.
Almost every job has a yearly moment to celebrate their profession – in fact, Employee Appreciation Day is the first Friday in March. National Freelancers Day is a moment to recognize and support the shift in the workforce and those in it who are pursuing their passions – like the entrepreneurial shop owner, graphic designer, or taxi drivers. Collectively, this community contributes $1.3 trillion to the US economy.  
As a part of the National Freelancers Day festivities, Robinhood is asking freelancers to tell us what inspired them to become a freelancer for the chance to win funds deposited into their Robinhood account. Those chosen can use the funds as they see fit – to spend, save, or invest. Checked out nationalfreelancersdayus.com to learn more.


HISTORY OF NATIONAL FREELANCERS DAY


Skilled craftspeople and tradespeople have worked independently or in small groups for many years worldwide. The early American economy was largely made up of small businesses and independent contractors. With the rise of the knowledge economy and technological advances in the 20th century, freelance work was more accessible and widespread. The growth of the internet and the development of digital platforms made it easier for freelancers to find a job and connect with clients.
Today, freelance work is a significant part of the American economy, with millions working independently in various fields. While freelance work offers many benefits, such as flexibility and autonomy, it also presents challenges, such as financial instability and difficulty accessing benefits like healthcare and retirement savings. 
With a growing number of people shifting toward freelance jobs and the gig economy to make an income, National Freelancers Day is meant as a day to celebrate the modern workforce.
