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.
