(NBC News) A Recent survey finds a surprising number of Americans are working two jobs.

Nearly four in ten workers have what's referred to as a side hustle, or a second job.

Bankrate.com's Amanda Dixon says their survey of more than 1,000 workers found nearly 40-percent were forced into a second job because of low pay from their first one.

"Thirty-eight percent of people say that yes, that's the case. They can't afford to cover their ordinary living expenses so they do need that extra source of income," Dixon says.
