Extra pay from holiday gig

1. Great Pay!

On holidays like Christmas and New Years Day, most businesses pay gig workers time-and-a-half. That means Banquet Servers and bartenders who usually make up to $22 per hour will instead earn up to $33 per hour for their holiday gigs!

Even on non-holidays, gig jobs this time of year tend to pay a little extra to find staff for their holiday parties and fill in for workers taking time off.

2. Fun Events

The gig economy has tons of cool events to work year-round, but December takes the cake for the most fun events! Holiday parties and new-year celebrations provide banquet servers, bartenders, and general event staff with opportunities to join the festivities and get paid at the same time.

If you’re lucky, there might even be some tasty treats & party favors left over that you can take home at the end of the night!
