What's Mom Worth? It's More Than You Think!

Laundry Machine Operator

Wash, dry, fold, repeat. But who needs a paycheck? Going through pockets before laundering yields great returns, especially when said laundry belongs to reticent teens. An hour removing unidentifiable stains? $9.62. Receipts indicating where allowance was spent? Priceless.
