(AP)- More than 250-thousand Michigan residents are working two or more jobs.
With decent-paying full-time positions harder to find, more people are holding down several jobs to make ends meet.
The U-S labor department says 5-point-4 percent of Michigan's 4-point-7 million employed workers had two or more jobs in 2005. That's up from 5-point-2 percent in 2004 and before the auto industry downsizing hit Michigan's economy.
Economists say the trend will continue as more high-paying manufacturing and white-collar jobs leave the state.
