Frontline got its first major signal about the potential for gig work from ODU students. We worked with ODU Leadership to gauge students' perspectives on campus cleanliness and their interest to get paid on an hourly, on-demand basis to support campus clean-ups. They said yes! And when? This led to our first campus clean-up gigs near student housing locations that were perpetually messy due to tailgates and other student activities.
