Summary
Freelancers can trace their job title back to Sir Walter Scott, who introduced the term in his 1819 novel, "Ivanhoe." His "free-lance" characters were medieval mercenaries who pledged their loyalty (and weapons) to lords and kings, for a fee. They replaced or complemented a standing army. Today's equivalent offers his or her services to a firm that needs work done, but which prefers paying for discrete tasks on a piecemeal or contractual basis rather than on a full-time basis.
