Rockville (MD), January 15, 2019 — From holiday spending hangovers to the government shutdown to simply filling free time, there’s been no shortage of factors motivating Americans nationwide to get their side hustle on early in 2019.
According to Packaged Facts in the new report The Financial Services Market: Targeting Gig Economy Workers, roughly 41% of Americans with a side hustle/gig cite the desire to supplement their income as the main reason for taking on the extra work. Likewise, about 15% of side giggers rely on these jobs as their primary source of income. Meanwhile, Packaged Facts found that for a select few—some 19% of gig workers—the side jobs play a role in leisure actives and are performed just for fun or as a hobby.
