The side hustle culture is alive and well! (Very, very well.)

Did you know that the term “side hustle” has been around since the 1950s?

Here’s a passage from the Aug. 12, 1950 edition of The Chicago Defender: “Alex Barnes of The Capitol Times was doing a public relations job at the conference as a side hustle.”

Bottom line: Americans have been doing this side gig thing for a long time now. By all indications, the gig economy will continue to power ahead in the years to come.

Of course, technology has come a long way since the middle of the 20th century. The advent of online platforms has opened the floodgates for side gig opportunities.

According to a 2021 survey by Pew Research Center, 16% of adult Americans have used an online gig platform to generate income. Their work includes delivering groceries and restaurant food, driving for a ride-hailing service, and doing household errands.

Those gigs, of course, are some of the more common ones—wait till you see the comprehensive list! A quick glance makes it crystal clear that the side hustle culture is a colorful, exciting world to explore.
