We've spoken at length about a strange phenomenon happening within the Duggar family these days.
It seems that several of Jim Bob's children have failed to succeed as adults, despite being born into remarkable affluence and an environment that strongly encourages the acquisition of wealth.
Some say the Duggars have been spoiled by reality TV stardom.
Others claim the Duggars' homeschooling left them unprepared to be competitive in the real world.
Whatever the case, several of Jim Bob and Michelle's adult children are struggling to get by.
The good news is, they don't have to worry about losing their jobs due to the coronavirus recession, as none of them have jobs to lose.
The bad news is ... well, pretty much everything else about their lives.
Here's a look at how Jim Bobs offspring are currently earning their daily bread:
1. The Lost Generation
The children of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have struggled mightily in their adult lives. The Duggars pride themselves on their work ethic, but some of them are barely working ... and barely getting by.
2. The Family Business
Obviously, the next generation of Duggars is at least partially supported by earnings from the family's reality show, but that might not amount to quite as much cash as you would think.
3. War of Words
The ongoing feud between Jim Bob Duggar and Derick Dillard has offered several illuminating insights into how the family operates behind the scenes, many of them having to do with finances.
Derick claims that Jim Bob keeps the money that TLC pays his kids, and doles it out to them only as needed.
5. Daily Degradation
So essentially, Jim Bob's adult children are grownups who still receive an allowance. No wonder so many of them are said to be unhappy with their current situation.
6. Dad and CEO
Of course, it's important to note that Jim Bob offers his kids more than just a cash allowance. He also permits the men in the family to take part in his other business ventures.
