The Hustle, a 5-step dance from the 1970 disco craze, is still popular in many countries. The Side Hustle is too, but it isn’t the same type of dance.
According to a new Bankrate.com report almost half of the US workers earn extra income at a side job, or Side Hustle. The report described the average Side Hustler as bringing in an extra $1,122 per month by working an extra 12 hours per week. This extra money typically accounts for less than half of their normal monthly earnings and is often used for discretionary spending, to boost savings, and for some, to cover living expenses.
With the unemployment rate being so low and workers in big demand, it is fairly easy to find a side hustle. Younger workers with technology skills can earn better money than Baby Boomers who are not as tech savvy. Side hustles can offer an opportunity to explore potential career options, develop new skills, network, build a resume, and have a little fun.
Your business can also benefit from offering Side Hustle opportunities. The strategy provides relatively inexpensive workforce relief, let you screen potential future recruits, support working options, fill in for vacationing employees, build your brand, and infuse some new ideas into your company. This strategy might also help balance out the impacts of increasing minimum wage rates.
