(From BUSINESS WIRE) -- The recession has taken
its toll on millions of families across the UK, but the Brits are
nothing if not resourceful, and according to Vivastreet.co.uk, a
free classifieds website, more people than ever are turning to
working from home, either to boost their salaries, replace lost
income or keep on top of their debts.
Vivastreet.co.uk figures show that, last year, the
number of people searching for work they could carry out in their
own homes increased by 142% compared to 2008. This
trend is expected to continue this year, as people look for
alternative ways to bring in some additional income.
In fact, this year more than 200,000 people have
already visited the Work from Home
(http://jobs.vivastreet.co.uk/mlm) section of the website, and
62% more people searched for 'work from home' jobs
last month than did in December 2009. Traffic levels in January
2010 were also a staggering 412% higher than
traffic levels in January 2009.
