More Belgians moonlighting

11:11 16/08/2013
More than 190,000 Belgians held down more than one job in 2012, an increase of 13% compared to 2008, according to statistics from FPS Economy and Eurostat.

Last year, 190,821 Belgians exercised two jobs, reports Belgian daily L'Echo. In total, 4.2% of Belgian workers were in this situation in 2012. That makes 13% more than in 2008, at the beginning of the economic crisis. The second job is often carried out under part-time independent status.
