The introduction lays out the core questions of the book and sketches out the main themes discussed. What does it mean to make a living with ‘gigs’? In what way are inequalities reproduced in new forms of temporary, low-paid jobs in the digital economy? On the basis of in-depth interviews and participant observations with young men in their twenties and thirties, the book explores their making do in precarious jobs of the digital economy. It probes a comparative methodology to develop analytical lenses that allow discussion of the making of livelihood beyond modern standards of formal employment, welfare and status as self-accruing individuals. Young men’s practices of making do in the digital economy are at the focus to explore the role of symbolic economies in the reproduction of inequalities in globalized urban precarity.
