Value of hard work....

So, my "little" bro is going to be 15 in a few days, and he needs money. I say little because he is 2 inches taller than me, but I'd still kick his ass ya know. Anyways, he asked if I had any work for him, because he wants $$ for summer etc. When I was his age (maybe a little older), I used to go through parking lots and apt complexes, I would put little flyers on cars stating a car wash and wax for $10. I had all my cleaning supplies and a buffer in my car, I would drive around cleaning cars and sometimes make $200 in a weekend. It wasn't super hard, but required a bit of time to do right...

So, I want to make him earn his money. Today, I'm going to have him pull all the weeds out from around my house, clear the mulch beds out and dump new mulch. Plus I want the grass edged and mowed too. I figure it will take him every bit of 5 to 6 hours to do all this, out in the hot sun too

I'm thinking of giving him $40 to $50. What do you think?

$10 an hour sounds about right...

10/hr sounds right, but if you want to make him learn about taxes only give him 70% of that and tell him the rest went to the government for taxes...

If you pay him 10.00 per hour, remember you paid income tax on that when you made it....

ya, pay him $10/hour, but make sure that he gets lunch/dinner when he's done too, the money is for the work, the meal is 'cause he's your brother.

HAIL TO THE KING!!
