Rehab 911 – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

The new “gig economy” is a combination of self-employment and contract work. It’s a model pioneered by Uber and Lyft.

The same model is finding its way into other occupations. You may not have considered ambulance drivers and the ER fitting into this concept. But that’s exactly what a New Orleans company, Ready Responders, is pioneering. It’s kind of Uber for the EMT business.
