More and more Filipino workers are turning to part-time jobs to boost their income and achieve financial stability, according to a recent survey by Agile Data Solutions, Inc., a startup market research firm.
The survey found that 60% of its respondents have part-time jobs, with the majority being younger Filipinos. The survey was conducted from July to September 2023 and involved 1,000 Filipinos aged 18 and above through the Hustle PH app.
According to the survey, those who have part-time jobs are earning an average of PHP10,000 per month, with most of them working in Calabarzon, Metro Manila, and Central Luzon. The survey also found that men are more likely to juggle multiple part-time jobs, while women are more likely to have a single sideline.
“Filipinos today aren’t just adapting to the digital age; they’re truly making the most of it,” said Agile Data Solutions chairman and chief executive officer Jason Gaguan. “With all the new technology and online platforms out there, many are finding jobs that fit their preferences and skills. It’s a testament to the adaptability and spirit of the modern Filipino workforce.”
The findings of the survey suggest that more and more Filipino workers are looking for ways to supplement their income and achieve financial stability. This trend is likely to continue in the coming years as the Philippines continues to develop and the economy grows.
