My husband just made a deal with our son that if he cleans the yard up this week he will pay him $40. I told them it's not a deal unless you shake on it and the both looked at me and shook their bodies lol dorks

40$ to clean up the yard. It must be pretty nasty.

I dunno. Yes it depends on how bad the yard is. Yet in today's society and the cost of things.... That's chump change .

Not really mostly leaves and stuff blown from the wind we had. My son wanted $40 for a game so hubby have him something to do to earn that money. We have a pretty big yard so it will take him a while.

Lol once our oldest needed money for something and hubby had her gold laundry for 2 days and called it even. He tends to over pay but he says just because they are kids doesn't mean their time is worth nothing lol

min wage is 65$ a day (8hrs) dollars before taxes. It only took me 10 mins to clean my yard (good size yard)

It takes me more than 10 mins a day to clean up the dog crap, taking leaves and cleaning up stuff blown in to the yard will take him at least an hour and who said we pay our kids min wage.

40$ an hour! OMG!

Sike.

I just gave my kid 60$ just because he asked for it the other day. He doesn't have to work for it. We don't have any pets. I wouldn't clean up shit.
