More and more Americans are taking on extra work to deal with skyrocketing inflation. The number of people working two full-time jobs for more than 70 hours a week has risen nearly 40% over the last two-and-a-half years, according to federal data. With the rate of inflation outpacing the rate of wage increases, nearly 75% of middle-income households say they don’t make enough to cover the cost of living. The consumer price index has risen 9.1% since June 2021 – a 40 year high. Some of these side hustles include food delivery, online freelancing and tutoring.
