One-third of Americans say they need a side gig to pay expenses

Jobs are more plentiful, the overall economy has been on an upswing, and yet one-third of Americans say they need to work a side job to pay their routine expenses, according to a new survey.

And nearly half — 45% — of U.S. workers earn additional income outside of their primary career, a recent Bankrate survey found.

This includes 48% of millennials. The percentage of Gen Xers and baby boomers with a side hustle is slightly lower, coming in at 39% and 28%, respectively.

Side hustlers make an average of $1,122 per month from their part-time work.
