Mom offers $500 to get daughter a job
“I’m offering $500 cash the minute she gets hired for $15 an hour or more as an executive assistant or an office job."
One Southern California woman is hell-bent to get her 36-year-old daughter a job. After a nine month stretch of unsuccessful job-hunting, Linda Smith is offering $500 in cold hard cash to anyone who takes her daughter Lisa’s resume and gets her employed, reports the Press-Enterprise.

Since 1996, Lisa had been receiving a stipend from the Veteran’s Administration as her mother’s full-time caregiver. But a doctor recently deemed Linda well enough to live alone and Lisa’s income terminated. Linda’s motherly instincts kicked in and she knew she had to help her daughter who’d been off the job market for nearly two decades.
“With all she does for me, I want to do something for her,” Linda told the Press-Enterprise.
