Susan Boyle bets on minimum wage job
A famous British singer is betting on a new job ... as a minimum-wage cashier at her neighborhood betting parlor in Scotland.
52-year-old Boyle first wowed millions in 2009 when she sang a rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream' on the TV show 'Britain's Got Talent.'
Boyle would work 16 hours a week at Ladbrokes, an employee there told The Sun.
'Susan Boyle walked into the shop and inquired about the job advertised in our window. We were all in shock. It's a cashier's job.'
WJXT reports that 'a source close to the Britain's Got Talent winner says she just wants a job that will get her more involved in her community.'
New York Daily News backs up that sentiment, reporting that there's speculation she just wants to be around other people. As of now, it doesn't seem to be a PR stunt.
According to Entertainmentwise, Boyle would earn £6, or about $9.95, an hour.
She definitely doesn't need the job: Boyle is reportedly worth about $33 million.
