Mcdonalds at $6.75/40h = $270 a week/1080 a month. According to mapquest: Total Est. Time: 8 minutes Total Est. Distance: 3.89 miles I have an opportunity to get a different job at $8 an hour, 40 hours a week... but heres the rub: It is 45 minutes away. I would be picking grapes, and taking my 15 year old cousin with me. My aunt and uncle would pay half my gas... Lets say regular unleaded is $2.25 a gallon.... According to mapquest, from my house to Arvin (where i would be working) Total Est. Time: 39 minutes Total Est. Distance: 28.67 miles My truck gets about 20 miles per gallon highway... maybe a bit more... 22? $8/40h = $320 a week/1280 a month. So, is that extra $1.25 really worth it? I get gas once every week and half or so now... costs me around $37 to fill up.... With my and and uncle paying half, thats only what? $18.50 outta my pocket? I would do this in a heart beat if I could still do 20 or so hours a week at mcdonalds... now, GO MATHLETES!
