$22 per hour comes out to about $800 a week, after fuel.
If taking that kind of job prevents me from doing work that usually
makes me about $1000 a weekend (if the weather's good), then working for
$22/hr seems pointless.
If a bit more Monday-through-Friday effort spent on marketing can get me
to $2000 a weekend (which is about the maximum I can fit into the
schedule) then even $40 an hour starts to look pointless.
