20 Bucks an Hour!!! Yippeee
This is an update to the last post. I caved in and tried my luck at another phone book route, and this time, I did quite well. $20 an hour is pretty good for short term, guaranteed-to-get-the-job work. I did so well because I chose a route with a few huge apartment buildings. The catch was that it was in a fancy neighborhood, and lots of the apartments had businesses (home based) listed, so they got 2 sets of phone books. I think I unloaded about 150 books at just one apartment building. This just goes to show you, if you are smart and pick the right routes, you too can do ok with this job. Don't believe the people who chose crummy routes and got screwed!
