Do tasks at premium buildings earn at a premium rate?

Yes, regular characters who interact with premium things earn more. I say "things" instead of buildings, because Fat Tony gets a higher wage/XP for his task of sitting in the hot tub (hot tub being the premium item).

What I can't quite figure out is that Kent gets a very very slight bump with his task about making a viewtube video, but that's just a brown house, I think.

    short answer is YES. Premium costumes will do that as well such as Camp Bart

    There are very few premium buildings you can purchase in which non-premium characters have a premium earning job.

    Agnes has a 16 hour job at the Sprawl*Mart.
    Legs and Louie each have a 3 hour job at Asia de Cuba.
    Kirk Van Houten has a 8 hour job at the Cracker Factory.
    Bart has a 3 hour job at Aztec Theatre.

    These are the only other non-premium character to premium building jobs I can think of that you did not mention. Hope this helps.

    Yup, forgot about that. Witch marge turns her into a premium character pay-out wise.

    There's also that 30 min task for Nelson with the wreck car. For those fond of short time tasks it is a very profitable thing. Music stage is good too, especially for Lisa, Willie, and Krusty - I think that's their only way to earn high rate :)

    ^ Very helpful post, thanks a lot.

    I didn't notice this til about a week ago, when I noticed Agnes paying $750 for her 16 hr greet customers task being more than her 24 hr task. So now I just always give her back to back to back 16 hour shifts just like the real Walmart does to their employees. :mrgreen:

    That seems to be a general rule. It's EA's way of justifying the cost of the item for the consumer.
