More Germans Relying on Two Jobs to Get By

This according to Deutsche Welle:

Almost 2.66 million people in Germany pursued more than just one job towards the end of 2012, the Federal Labor Agency (BA) reported.

According to the Monday edition of the regional newspaper “Freie Presse”, the figure marked another rise by 59,000 people compared to the level reached a year earlier, meaning that 9 percent of all people in regular employment chose to top up their incomes that way.

The number of people going for a second job has risen steadily since 2003 and has more than doubled within a decade, the newspaper stated.
