Reproduced from AppJobs; Chart: Axios Visuals

A new survey of more than 275,000 gig applications in the U.S. over the last 12 months shows there's a bit of a mismatch between the side hustles gig workers are seeking and the ones that pay the most.

Details: Florida is the state with the highest number of temporary job applications at 55,762, which translates to 4,500 applications a month.

  • California had the second highest number of gig applications, followed by New York, Texas and Pennsylvania, respectively.
  • The number of applications for delivery driving equaled just under half of the total applications for gig work across the country.
