My job

Rigel Yam, Staff Writer

Jobs. Everyone has one. Student’s jobs are to go to class and do their work. Most adults have jobs. But unfortunately some adults don’t have jobs. I have a job though. A job outside of school. I work at apartments in West Jordan with my older brother. We don’t do too much, all we do is just take the trash out from the apartments. Since the whole apartment complex only has one “trash can”. The way we do it is we take my brothers truck and just drive around to each of the apartment buildings, get out of the truck and just go get the trash from the buildings and put it in the back of the truck. We empty out the truck by taking to the the only trash spot in the apartment complex, and we unload all the trash from the bed of the truck next to a trash compactor, and then we throw the trash into the compactor and compact the trash. After that, if we still have more buildings (which we usually do after unloading once) we go to the buildings that we haven’t done and take the trash out.
We work from Sunday to Thursday. We go into work at 8 p.m. and usually leave around 8:40 p.m. that’s on days where there isn’t as much trash. But since we don’t work on the weekends, the trash on Sunday piles up and we take longer. So on Sunday’s we usually leave at around 9:40 p.m. or sometimes 10. It can be hard and tiring most of the time, and sometimes things spill on me, but at the end of the day the job pays pretty good for the work we do. Normally if we did it by ourselves we would split $1,400 a month. So my brother would make $700 and I would make $700 a month too, but since we work with someone else the pay gets split in half, so together me and my brother make $700 a month, so we have to split it again, but this time he will be gettingĀ  a little more because he needs the money to be paying for gas and all other things, so I make $200 a month, and he should be making $500 a month but after taxes and all that are taken out he gets around $400, which I’m satisfied with.
