Man earns $171k on Airtasker
TECHNOLOGY has made it possible to easily hire someone to perform labour. And while paying someone might make your life easier, it’s also helping people earn a living.
Just ask Diz Jangra, who has become Airtasker’s top member, earning nearly three times the Australian average salary in 2017.
The 37-year-old from Melbourne has earned $171,000 through work found on Airtasker, completing a total of 172 tasks, earning an average of $1000 a job.
Mr Jangra said when he joined Airtasker in 2015, he never expected it would become a full-time job.
“I have spent the last year just doing jobs on Airtasker and have been happy with all of the money coming into my account,” he told news.com.au.
All of the jobs Mr Jangra has taken are painting related, which was a skill he picked up immediately after moving to Australia 12 years ago. As for the working hours required to earn $171,000, Mr Jangra has told people they should be willing to work seven days a week.
