Smart Quiz: How Much Money Could the Average Person Earn at $10 Per Hour vs. Watching TV?

  •  $20/day
  • $30/day
  • $40/day
  • $10/day

Answer: $40/day

Are you or someone you care about looking for a little motivation to get off the couch and get moving? Need a push to be more productive but lack the energy at the end of the day? How about a cash reward for NOT watching TV? By putting down the remote and finding a job, even at the federal minimum wage, you could make and extra $40+ each day.

The average American watches approximately 4 hours of TV per day. At just $10 per hour, multiply that out, you get $40 per day or $1,200+ per month of earning potential. If you can earn $15 per hour, you could easily earn $60 per day working just 20 days per month and reward yourself with 10 days of TV instead of 30 days.

Jobs Sitting Down

For people with mobility issues or trouble staying on their feet for long periods of time, some workplaces can be intimidating. This doesn’t mean they can’t work. It simply means finding a job that can be done from home or while sitting down. Examples include:

  • Customer service
  • Telemarketing
  • Appointment setting
  • Toll booth operator
  • Ticket taker
  • Tutoring

Jobs To Get You Moving

For those that want to get off the couch and get the blood circulating, there are plenty of jobs which can help with that, too. From just being on your feet to really getting in a good workout, there’s something for every energy level. Try one of the following:

  • Store greeter
  • Janitor
  • Fast food
  • Gym assistant
  • Landscaper
  • Pool cleaner

It doesn’t matter if it’s sitting down or getting moving. All anyone has to do to change their life is take the first step. Turn off that TV, go out and meet people, and find a new challenge in the form of a new or second job. Replacing TV time with part time work doesn’t just change the financial future, but the emotional one, too.
