When we were kids, mom & dad paid us to do chores around the house. 10¢ to dust. 5¢ to clean the toilet. 25¢ to vacuum. It’s how we earned the money we needed to buy candy bars at the nearby grocery store, or, if we pedaled across the creek, at the 7-11.
In 6th grade, our new next-door neighbors paid me 75¢ an hour to babysit their 2-year old. That was 25¢ more than my mom paid me to help out in her day care home.
Early lessons in economics never leave you.
