SAN FRANCISCO - December 1, 2022 - (

Instawork, the leading platform for connecting businesses with skilled workers, announced today the platform's availability to hourly workers in the Tampa area looking to earn higher wages as holiday and end-of-year travel are expected to be the highest in years.

In Tampa, the average hourly pay rate on the Instawork platform is $16.52 per hour, a vast improvement over the state's minimum wage of $11 per hour. That steep increase gives Sunshine State residents a way to pay for expensive additions to their household budgets during the holidays. 

It also comes as New York Fed researchers recently reported that credit card balances in the third quarter were up $38 billion - the biggest annual increase in more than two decades. Florida residents can remedy this and start paying down their holiday bills by downloading the Instawork app, creating a profile, and finding work opportunities with businesses across the Tampa area.

While Florida recently increased the state minimum wage by a dollar as part of its six-year plan to bring the minimum wage to $15 by 2026, flexible workers who join Instawork can achieve an increased level of income without delay. Immediate access to higher pay rates are also crucial with current inflation and a recession looming. 

More than 60,000 people in Tampa have already downloaded the Instawork app and are working to staff business locations across the area. Common roles for Instawork in Tampa include general labor, counter staff/cashier, warehouse associate, line cook, and event servers. Local workers can easily create a profile, find a shift that matches their skills and interests, and start working in as little as 24 hours.

"I love Instawork and will likely never go back to a full-time job again," said James Morter, an Instawork Pro and Tampa resident. "It gives me the flexibility I need to take care of my kids and pick and choose when I work. It's by far the best work platform I've tried."

Tampa businesses that rely on Instawork range from nationally-recognized hotels and restaurant groups to some of the area's favorite local hot spots and sports venues. They have easy access to quality, reliable workers, following Instawork's announcement that over 1 million people have joined the app in recent months leading up to the holiday season to fill shifts in the first post-Covid holiday season. 

"Instawork has been a blessing for us. We would not be able to operate without it. Instawork has completely changed the staffing landscape for the better," said Steve Andress, President of Florida Statewide Logistics. 

Instawork is currently staffing businesses in more than 30 markets across the U.S. and Canada. Those interested in learning more about Instawork should visit or download the app.

Kids’ Talent Agency Stellar NYC Introduces Fresh Talent and New Influencer Board

Stellar NYC widens its network of young talents with its new Influencer board to cater to the social media marketing needs of its growing client base.

Stellar NYC, founded by licensed talent agent Stella Roman in 2014, has always sought to fill gaps in the talent industry. Aside from representing kids in the areas of Print, Commercial, and Theater (On-screen), its fourth board—Inclusive—was born because of the lack of representation for children with disabilities. 

"I still remember receiving that email from a parent - so upset - saying she wishes children who use wheelchairs like her son were more represented in ads. Right then, I knew that pushing for more inclusivity in the industry was something I had to do," Roman recalled.  

Now, the upsurge of social media marketing and content creators has prompted the agency to dedicate a fifth division for managing 'mini-influencers' and their parents/families on various online platforms, including but not limited to Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.

Some of the influencers under the care of Stellar NYC are well-known family and lifestyle content creators @AmazingAbigailGrace@Kikioella, and @zhansayadixon, who have audiences ranging from thousands to millions of followers.

Influencer division head and social media manager Em Meagher manages these talents with her extensive experience as a digital influencer herself and hopes to deliver success similar to previous and ongoing projects of the company. 

Stellar NYC is the agency representing the young boy who uses a wheelchair and went viral after being placed in a 2020 Target ad and later was invited as a guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. The talent agency has also booked kids on projects with top brands such as GAP, NIKE, and Steve Madden, as well as secured its talented actors work on top network shows and movies featured on Netflix, Disney+ and HBO.

Clients interested in working with Stellar NYC's influencers may check the media kit or inquire at [email protected] Clients interested in booking talent for all other divisions may email [email protected]

Parents needing representation for their kid models and talents can also reach out to the agency by emailing [email protected] for those residing in and around the New York City area. While those out of state and seeking representation in L.A., FL, or Chicago can email [email protected] Influencers can send their details to [email protected]
