Business & sticky

As a jobber you negotiate with your employer simply verbally about the work and the goods, such as:

1 working hour assistance in the apple harvest = 5 kilo of apples.

Both of you can also can merchandise values with the help of your local currency, for example:

1 hour of work helping with grocery sales = 5 Euro value of goods.

After the agreed 4 hours total time the jobber gets different foods with a total value of 20 Euros for the current prices from the business of the employer.

You can also arrange pick up the goods later, for example, after the harvest. Then you should let give you a written voucher for the goods purchased amount at the end of the work, for example, so: "voucher 50kg apples, to be picked up the latest 30.09.20xx. Publisher: Farm Gerard Miller, Villagestreet 1, in Millvilliage, signature of the holder ".

As an employer you should in any case care for a maximum safety at work and ensure an adequate insurance on your part, as check if your jobber has an insurance. Find out in detail with your insurance and your legislators about the legal situation. The information on this page does not replace legal advice.

Meet an agreement before starting work with your jobber, whether it is a purely private aid, a joint private activity or a free operating internship in a company or an association. For private aids jobbers need adequate private insurance, for example, liability insurance in case they damage a valuable property of the employer and a health insurance in case of an accident. The private employer also needs a liability insurance and in additional a builders insurance, when he claimes private assistance in a construction project. Operating free internships must be agreed in writing an internship contract. Make sure you have an insurance for industrial accidents and a public liability insurance, then the insurance pays the full cost in case of an accident.

You should give your jobbers only simple and safe work, for example, in sales, harvesting from the ground and mainly manual work without power tools.

Do not enter your jobbers hazardous jobs with machines, tractors, saws or cars. Always keep in mind that many make for the first time a job in your industry. Give them an appropriate introduction to the work or place them permanently a specialist aside.

Good luck and have fun with your work!

Now Peter and Angela do not have to harvest everything alone and the harvest has already some customers. Since Angela now no longer needs to help with the harvest, she has time to go to market. Both are pleased with more money and more sales this fall.

Philosophy & inspiration

Some people work for small pieces of paper or some numbers on your bank statement. With us you earn many different real goods and pay with the money what everyone has, with your time, your skills and your strength.

With us you do not pay taxes. No one has to do all the paperwork. No one has to participate in global trade. For many works and goods, particularly in agriculture, you do not need an extra permission, if you want to produce them or give them away.

You work in sectors where everyone really needs the other. For instance in organic farming and horticulture, organic food stores, in bike workshops for non-profit organizations, for neighbors and sometimes even for people, who gives you nothing of value than a "thank you". Making a senseful work, is always better than actually do useless things for paper and figures or to have nothing to do. was inspired by and is our response to the economic, environmental, financial and social crisis in countries around the world.
