Buddy’s imaginary NASCAR win is disrupted by his brother, Ben, who has come to remind Buddy that they have leaf-raking jobs to do. The boys discuss jobs people do and the income they receive for doing those jobs. They point out that income can consist of wages, interest, rent, and profit, but that people receive wages for the work they perform. The discussion turns to other forms of compensation – employee benefits.
