Ever wonder how people are affording to live these days with the cost of everything so high? Well, Bankrate.com says 44 million Americans have what it calls “side hustles.”

That’s what we used to call a “second job.” And, while Bankrate didn’t get into this, I wonder how many of those second jobs are what we still call “off the books.”

Bankrate says that 86 percent of the side hustlers do it at least monthly and 36 percent of those earn more than an additional $500 a month.
