More than 100,000 workers in the Dominican Republic had two jobs to survive in 2022

For hundreds of workers, a single source of economic income is insufficient to support their standard of living, prompting them to start or work in two businesses at the same time. According to the most recent report on the Dominican Republic’s sectoral panorama, approximately 102,942 people who contribute to the Dominican Social Security System (SDSS) had two or more jobs at the end of 2022.

The Ministry of Economy, Planning, and Development (MEPyD) released its most recent economic analysis by sector, highlighting that 105,000 new workers were hired in the formal sector during 2022, representing a 4.8% increase over 2021. However, 4.5% of all contributing employees (2,271,360) work more than one job.

The entities calculate the number of workers who contribute to Social Security and the total contributions that employers register for each of their employees to determine the level of multiple employment. This variation represents the number of employees who contribute to the Social Security Treasury for two salaries (TSS).
