Su Changfu and his wife had two sons. One was twenty years old and the other was eighteen, so they were both at the perfect age for this sort of work.
If he and his two sons could work for Su Tang this time they would be able to earn close to nine taels of silver over the next four months. Coupled with the money they had already earned while raising seedlings earlier in the year, their family would have enough money to get wives for the two children and even build a new house for the elders.
Su Changfu’s two sons nodded along with sparkling eyes. “En, we will definitely help build the new house for auntie and uncle.”
As the family all looked up at Su Tang, they even felt as if the little girl was glowing. If Su Tang hadn’t come along and given them such great opportunities one after another, how would they be able to save enough money to build a new house and even bring back two wives to marry? Moreover, with so much money in hand, they would also be able to choose girls from better families when picking who to marry.
All of this had been given to them by their Aunt Tang, and they all remembered it in their hearts.
“As for who exactly will be hired, I have handed that responsibility over to Brother Qiang. Meanwhile, Brother Shun will be the one working as the supervisor. Once the time comes, everyone will be able to collect their wages from Brother Qiang. However, I also have one final point…”
Su Tang’s eyes swept over the excited crowd. Her gaze lingered for a moment on the two women who had just been speaking jealous words before moving on and finally landing on Su Yonggui and his family. “…there are a few people who I’m afraid will have no fate with this job.”
Then she spoke directly to Su Yonggui, “Brother Gui has always been living a good life at home, and I can’t bear to let you overwork yourself, so I won’t trouble you.”
Su Tang easily used a few words to sweep this great opportunity out of the hands of Su Yonggui’s family.
Su Yonggui narrowed his eyes and looked up at the little girl that he had pushed into the river with his own hands. Her gaze was faint and her words were causal, but the resentment against his family was obvious.
After all, this was a job that paid close to three taels of silver after a mere four months of work. In the whole of Sujia Village, it was no exaggeration to say that no one would be able turn down such a great job. People would definitely be willing to fight over this kind of opportunity.
In fact, before Su Tang had spoke just now, Su Yonggui had even been considering whether he should say a few words and try to make peace with Su Tang. After all, if it hadn’t been for his consent, the two siblings would never have been able to be removed from his household and adopted into Su Laochuan’s household. From a certain perspective, it could be said that he had done them a favor.
But who would have thought that just as he was feeling willing to make peace, Su Tang wouldn’t even give him the chance? Su Yonggui stared at Su Tang, and his eyes flashed with a tint of frightening darkness.
As soon as Su Sanshou heard Su Tang mention the wage of 22 copper coins a day, he had immediately become excited. After all, the ones hiring this time were his own family members, would they still beat him with a whip? If he were hired, wouldn’t he be able to make money while lying down?
Moreover, what was the relationship between Su Tang and his family? Would Su Tang even have the nerve to say anything to them?
After all, if it hadn’t been for their family’s consent, Su Tang would never have been able to be adopted into Su Laochaun’s household in the first place, the little brat owed them!
Su Sanshou had even eagerly turned to his wife, Madam Zhang, and began to discuss happily. In his mind, he only felt that a great opportunity to pick up money for nothing had come.
But before this dream could come true, he was rudely awakened. Su Tang merely pointed her finger at them, and his dream of getting rich? It was directly destroyed.
“What do you mean? Why can’t we? Have you forgotten that you’re from our family? !” Su Sanshou shouted angrily. Why was Su Tang cutting off his path to riches?
Meanwhile, Madam Sun’s face had also turned pale, but she grabbed her husband and gestured for him to be silent. When she heard Su Sanshou angrily yelling, she gritted her teeth even harder, but continued to pull on Su Erlu’s arm to stop him from doing anything.
Madam Sun was a smart woman who believed in minding her own business and staying low profile. She knew her husband was the only person in the family who would actually work. And she remembered when Su Tang and her brother had left the household back then. At that time, neither she nor her husband had stood out, either to help or to harm them and had just watched from the sidelines.
But she could also tell that Su Tang was very capable now. After all, the girl was planning to pay nearly three taels of silver to every worker she hired, and there would be dozens of workers in total, and just how much money was that? Enough money to drown anyone in Sujia Village anyway. Moreover, in the past, thanks to being dragged down by Madam Wu, she had already offended Su Tang, so she really dared not take any more risks.
