TO save money, HELP was required.

by Karen

Our eldest son will be 16 in March, 2020. In our county, when a child turns 16 he can do quite a few of the following: A. Start his Driver Lisc written studies and eventually get a Drivers Lis. B. Help and I mean HELP our local Wild Fire Crew and get paid thousands just to help feed them when the fire season starts. or C. Stay at home, go around the neighborhood looking for odd jobs. I prompted our son to HELP the Wildland fire fighters because it's morally upright, and he can save big time for anything he wants. He never needed a drivers liscence because there was a bus to HELP the men and women who fight fires throughout the summer. He can make close to $5,000 in three months, for a 16 year old that's a lot of money.
