I am able to balance my children's education and providing a stable income with independent work

I have three young children at home. Now with the pandemic and distance learning, I am able to balance my children's education and providing a stable income with independent work as a gig worker. I don't believe that will be possible if I am forced to find employment that requires a set shift. Our economy has already been hit with too many blows. If app-based opportunities cease I believe it would further harm an already struggling economy. If it weren't for many of these app-based opportunities already in place, many more of our local restaurants and businesses would be forced to shut their doors. In addition, many more would be forced to rely on unemployment to make ends meet.
