In the fifth installment of life at Bethel with JT, he talks about G-Jobbing and how everyone at Bethel was not broke. A lot of the brothers that work in the trades had the opportunity to make money on the side by doing construction jobs at Kingdom Hall’s and the homes of the local friends in the congregation (roofing, laying tile, dry wall, installing carpet, etc.). Others had the opportunity to work as wedding photographers and waiter’s at weddings. And for those individuals that had a skill in cutting hair, they were able to earn a few extra bucks working as a barber to those brothers needing a haircut much sooner than the three weeks allowed at Bethel.
For those brothers that had a skill in computer programming, they took their talent to Wall Street and held jobs over there after hours. The opportunities were endless.
Of course, all good things must come to an end! And so it did when the issue of tax reporting became a serious issue when Bethelites started receiving 1099’s and were reportedly not filing the extra cash earned on their taxes. Yikes!
