SAN FRANCISCO, August 11, 2022 (

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

In Denver, the average hourly pay rate on the Instawork platform is $18.96, more than $3 more per hour than the city’s celebrated minimum wage increase to $15.87 earlier this year. 

More than 36,000 people in Denver have already downloaded the Instawork app and are working to staff more than 100 business locations across the area. Common roles in Denver include general labor, warehouse associates, retail positions, and event server shifts.

“The city’s minimum wage increase gives hardworking Denver residents the extra pay they deserve, but booking shifts through Instawork can increase their earnings even further,” said Kira Caban, Instawork’s Head of Strategic Communications. “That extra amount per hour can pay for a gallon of gas or milk at a time when inflation has caused prices of those items to remain very high.”

Pros can easily create a profile, find a shift that matches their skills and interests, and start working in as little as 24 hours.

Hourly professionals (Instawork Pros) using Instawork experience: 

  • Work flexibility: build schedules around personal lives and income goals
  • Financial stability: view shift earnings before they work
  • Unlimited income potential: work as little or as much as they want
  • Get paid quickly: ability to get paid the same day
  • Unique and exciting work opportunities

Businesses that rely on Instawork Pros range from nationally-recognized hotels and restaurant groups to some of the city’s favorite local hot spots and sports venues. These businesses are consistently matched with high-quality, reliable Pros to fill available shifts and deliver valuable services. The Instawork platform encourages both hourly workers and businesses to rate each other on a five-star scale after each shift to help match future shifts with those who are best qualified. 

Businesses using Instawork experience:

  • Quick access to qualified workers in their community
  • Improved operational efficiency with quality and reliable staffing
  • Increased customer loyalty due to happier staff and better experiences
  • Time saved on administrative tasks, returning focus to other top priorities
