Capitalism in socialist Seattle.

Via Fox News:

David Holston is not your typical teen.

The 18-year-old entrepreneur who started a landscaping business in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho last spring made more in four days than many make in a year after a lucrative trip to Seattle with his truck and a plow just when the Emerald City got hit with historic levels of snow — 10 inches in some parts of the city.[…]

Holston was visiting his mom on her birthday while she was recovering from surgery. But, before he left, his friend tipped him off that there would be a foot of snow in Seattle, which the area wasn’t prepared for. So he drove his truck and plow there and worked 12-to 15-hour days, starting around 2 a.m.

In Idaho, he typically charges $125 an hour. But in Washington State, he put an ad on Craigslist and charged up to $500 to $750 an hour.
