We know that gig work generated $1.2 trillion for America’s economy last year. But what does the average gig worker look like? Here’s what Bankrate’s survey says:
Side hustlers make $686 per month, on average. Within a year, it’s possible to earn more than $8,200. Those who work a second job at least once per month earn an average of $836 on a monthly basis.
Most survey respondents (59 percent) say they consider the money they earn from their side job to be disposable income. And 38 percent say they use their extra funds to cover ordinary living expenses.
