I think it comes with one of the expansion packs, either Livin Large or House Party. You need to put in a woodworking table. When they start they only get a $1 or so for their first few, but as their mechanical skill increases, they make more money. All five ni my family are unemployed. One knows how to cook and the rest know how to build gnomes and party. It makes it easier to have kids too, as someone is always going to be awake!
