fairly easy to get a $12 per hour job where you are, I'd imagine, and he has the potential to make more as a salesperson, or obviously make less. How many cars do they sell per month opn average? How many sales people? What's the pay plan? Will they train him? These are key questions. Speaking for myself, I'd take the job. Right now he's grossing $24k per year - it's not like you really are risking losing anything substantial.
