Jump in double jobbing suggests we still believe in paying our way

Double jobbing has increased dramatically in the last year, according to new figures from the Central Statistics Office.

The reason a growing number of people are taking more than one job is unclear as yet, but a likely explanation is that many workers suffering from pay cuts and increased taxes are now working a second job to supplement their incomes and pay their bills.

With all the talk of 'strategic defaulters' and mortgage arrears, it is often forgotten that the majority of people still believe in paying their debts.
