The U.S. economy added fewer than expected jobs in August – at a time when many Americans are eager to add more positions to their resumes.
As the unemployment rate remained near multi-decade lows, a record-high number of Americans are working multiple jobs, according to data from Deutsche Bank.
In addition, as the gig economy gains steam, more workers have both a full-time and part-time job.
About 5 percent of all workers held more than one job at a time in July.
The trend could speak to wage growth, which has generally remained sluggish in the wake of the financial crisis. For some, the salary of a full-time position is not enough.
Average hourly earnings rose 3.2 percent year-over-year in August, which was above expectations.
