More workers are choosing to hold down multiple jobs

So, the guy described in this article leaves his house at 2:20 a.m. and works until 5:30 p.m. And he likes it.

Like Jay Hancock, the commentator, says: "Where else but America?" Hancock also argues that this is a sign of a healthy economy.

It's not necessarily a bad sign. Belying the perception of multiple jobholding as a token of hard times, history shows that moonlighting ebbs and flows with the larger business cycle. An expanding economy means not just that more people can work; it means more people can work multiple jobs, if they want.

I don't know about you, but I'd rather have one job that allows me to meet all my financial obligations.
