More individuals are selling Tupperware and other products due to the economic downturn.

As reported by Reuters, the number of people seeking to earn additional funds for direct sales work has increased significantly due to the economy.
Judy Montalbano, a Tupperware sales representative, is quoted by Reuters as stating, “It does help pay the household bills and the extras…My husband is looking to retire next year. Everyone is looking to make extra money with the state of the economy.”
