'Girl Meets World' Kid

I Make $8,000 a Week

... And I'm 6 Years Old

The youngest child on the new Disney sitcom "Girl Meets World" makes WAY more money than you ... $8,000 a week to be exact ... and he's only 6 years old.

According to the minor contract for August Maturo -- who plays the youngest son of Cory and Topanga on the show -- the child actor is set to earn $8,000 per episode (one a week) for the first season of the show.

If the show is approved for additional seasons, he's set to earn even more -- up to $9,261 per episode by Season 4. Pretty sweet.

It obviously pays to be one of the main characters ... we got the minor contract for another kid on the show (who plays the daughter's love interest) and he's only set to make about $4,800 an episode.

Only.

How many episodes per year though? If it is 26 or less per year, I still make more than this little brat...although I put in a lot more hours!

Is it any wonder parents want to get their kids into show biz? Competition is brutal, but the rewards are great. That money also helps pay for rehab later.

Very few child actors make the transition to successful adult actors..Here's hoping his parents take the fruits of his labor and diversify with a few financial planners so the kid's higher education or multiple stints in rehab are paid for when this gig is over.

Thats a lot of money for a child.. Hope his parents invest it wisely in to his future. And for the people being hateful to a child on here, your childhood must have been horrible for you even say the things you do. Grow up & get a job, your jealous that a kid can make more than you.. Go for it kiddo, wish it was me..
