Kids Complete 20 Million Jobs Though MyJobChart.com

MJC Helps Kids Earn Close to $2.5 Million While Learning About Work Ethic and Responsibility

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - January 27, 2014) - There has always been a silent workforce in America -- our kids.

Leading the way to help kids achieve success is MyJobChart.com, which today announced that its membership of nearly 600,000 has earned close to $2.5 million by completing over 20 million jobs. Already the fastest growing online job chart and reward system for families, MyJobChart.com has seen its membership grow by more than 900% in the last three years, demonstrating that parents are using modern technology to engage their kids and get jobs done.

"According to the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics there are 74 million kids under 18 years old currently in the U.S.," noted MyJobChart.com CEO and Founder Gregg Murset. "This is an unbelievable workforce, but more so, it is also our future. It is extremely important that as parents we make sure our kids understand the meaning of work ethic, responsibility, accountability and managing money, so they are best prepared to be successful adults."

Among the 20 million jobs completed by MyJobChart.com kids, brushing teeth, making beds and getting dressed on time rank at the top of the list. The Top 10 jobs completed are:
