Earning extra cash from a second job?

The unemployed aren’t the only ones looking for work these days. Rising cost of living, pay cuts, frozen wages, dwindling retirement accounts and other budget-stretching factors have caused many full-time workers to seek additional sources of income. Even some small-business owners are moonlighting as a way to keep their companies afloat.

Making ends meet in any economy – let alone a challenging one – is tough enough for many people. Some employers may be reluctant to allow full-time employees to hold second jobs because they fear that the additional hours could lead to on-the-job fatigue and poor performance.

If you’re a full-timer with a second job, what kind of side work are you doing? Is your current employer supportive of the “other” job? What impact has it had on your family, professional and social life?
