I’m going to go ahead and assume that you work hard at your job(s) in order to make a living. You put in at least 40 hours a week, if not more, to earn a modest wage. Sometimes working for the weekend can be a grind. Some of us even have to work during the weekend.

Now just imagine making more than a million dollars for 12 days of work. That…would not be the worst thing. That’s what some vendors at the Minnesota State Fair are able to do, and while they’re all obviously working for more than 12 days, being able to earn a million dollars in 12 days is still very appealing. KARE 11 recently looked at seven State Fair vendors who earned more than a million in 2016, but here are the top 5:

  1. Ball Park: $1,049,794
  2. Giggle’s Campfire Grill: $1,109,776
  3. Cheese Curds: $1,118,983
  4. Midwest Dairy: $1,158,500
  5. Sweet Martha’s: $3,938,509

If you’ve been to any of these places during the fair, you know how hectic it must be to work there. But still: One million dollars in twelve days. I can think of worse ways to earn a living.
