Instawork, the leading platform for connecting businesses with skilled workers, announced today the platform's availability to hourly workers in the Atlanta area looking to earn higher wages during a time when inflation is stressing household budgets. 

In Atlanta, the average hourly pay rate on the Instawork platform is $17.63, more than double the state's minimum wage of $7.25. This year, Atlanta was ranked the fourth worst city in the United States to live in while earning minimum wage.

More than 100,000 people in Atlanta have already downloaded the Instawork app and are working to staff 200 business locations across the area. Common roles in Atlanta include general labor, warehouse, event servers, bartenders, retail, and custodial shifts.

"While inflation is at a record high, the ability to easily make more money with Instawork is helping hourly workers combat rising costs of their household items and gas," said Kira Caban, Instawork's Head of Strategic Communications. "Picking up just a few shifts can help offset the increased costs and help workers in Atlanta achieve financial stability while also achieving work flexibility."
