Before the pandemic, gig work has always existed, but it didn't receive much attention. However, there are concerns about the stability and sustainability of gig jobs. Despite this, people were still working gig jobs and consumer sentiment was not negative. Claudia highlighted a specific stability issue caused by the expiration of relief measures in 2021. Although some individuals' financial situations may appear better than before the pandemic, factors such as stimulus checks, student loan payment pauses, and child tax credit expansions ending can still make people feel worse off. Claudia is interested in understanding the impact of these pandemic policies. The speaker conducted extensive research and strongly supported the stimulus checks.
