Microjobs are like the 5 and Dime Store from long ago, they are the discount jobs. These fast little tasks literally take seconds to complete and pay anywhere from pennies to dollars depending on the task. Some tasks can take up to 15 to 20 minutes and for obvious reasons offer better pay.
Trying to make ends meet in this time of unemployment, rising gas prices and a slow economy has created a whole legion of online workers. A steady flow of microjobs can mean the difference between hot dogs and beans and a candlelit steak dinner.

Many freelance writers, actors/ actresses, and budding entrepreneurs use micro jobs as their primary source of income when their regular work slows down.
