We know, we know — duh. Nothing is more American than 45% of the population having jobs in addition to their jobs so they can make enough money to survive in this plutocratic hellscape, but at least it’s relatively easy to find a side hustle these days. The gig economy is stronger than ever, in large part because so many individuals and companies are too cheap to hire people for real jobs, so it’s a self-sustaining cycle of people prostrating themselves on the altar of low, low prices.
Seriously, though, if you have any skills at all, you can probably find somebody willing to pay you to help them out. Sites like Upwork, Fiverr, and Freelancer.com help writers, programmers, designers, marketers, and just about anyone else find some extra work. If you know another language, you could use sites like Gengo or One Hour Translation to earn some extra freelance income, too.
