“In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that an estimated 7.59 million Americans held multiple jobs in 2022, which saw an increase of 8.29% since 2021.

Many people try to turn their passions into a side hustle, as they already have a wealth of knowledge in that area.

The data provides a fascinating insight into the disparities across the US for interest in starting a side hustle with Utah having nearly double the interest compared to Mississippi.”
