Society moves towards liquid labour and free information accessible to all via the internet. This shift means it matter less and less when something is done for a company and it doesn’t need to be done on a 9 to 5 time frame in an office anymore. With our increasing ability to communicate effectively in real time over the internet and work from home to anywhere in the world is leading to what is call liquid labour. Liquid labour exists in the non space of the internet and the free information it provides.

This brings into question the need for traditional jobs and highlights our shift to freelance and casual work.
