Yes, that’s $150 selling candy on New York City’s subway. That’s good money. If he works a five-day week, that’s almost $40,000 a year. And that’s after-tax money, because methinks he doesn’t pay taxes on it. He boasts about buying $300 sneakers with his earnings.
And he’s quite the entrepreneur, because he sells a few varieties of candy, including “trail mix bars for people that like to eat healthy, which, this got the most sugar in it.”
I see young kids and teens selling candy on the CTA for their ball teams, but they aren’t this organized. There’s a lesson for them here.
