BriefingWire.com, 2/05/2019 - From holiday spending hangovers to the government shutdown to simply filling free time, there’s been no shortage of factors motivating Americans nationwide to get their side hustle on early in 2019.

According to Packaged Facts in the new report The Financial Services Market: Targeting Gig Economy Workers, roughly 41% of Americans with a side hustle/gig cite the desire to supplement their income as the main reason for taking on the extra work. Likewise, about 15% of side giggers rely on these jobs as their primary source of income. Meanwhile, Packaged Facts found that for a select few—some 19% of gig workers—the side jobs play a role in leisure actives and are performed just for fun or as a hobby.

An estimated 76 million U.S. adults are “Side Gig Workers,” defined as those who had been paid for an assortment of occasional work activities or side jobs—which Packaged Facts groups into 12 gigs across three categories. This distinguishes Side Gig Workers from the 27 million U.S. adults who claim to have a second job in addition to their main job. Packaged Facts groups side gigs thusly:

Home/Personal Care/Services

* Babysitting, child care services, dog walking, or house sitting

* Disabled adult or elder care services

* House cleaning, house painting, yard work, or other property maintenance work

* Providing other personal services, such as running errands, helping people move, etc.

Online Services

* Completing paid online tasks, such as on Amazon Services, Mechanical Turk, Fiverr, Task Rabbit, or YouTube

* Renting out property online, such as their car, their place of residence, etc.

* Selling goods on-line through eBay, Craigslist, or other websites

* Driving using a ride-sharing app such as Uber or Lyft

* Other online paid activities (excluding taking the survey in which this question was asked)
