I work on a farm, but it's not as romantic as you think: I need to wake up around sunrise to go to work, and I get paid just 4 pennies per minute. I had to take a second job to pay the bills. Honestly, I'd do anything just to get an apartment, but I'm such a sad sack it'll probably never happen.
What is my name?
(A correct answer should explain all the clues, and I'm looking for a specific, non-fictional human being. The clues are not meant to be taken literally.)
(P.S. I removed the 'room and board' bit because it was just in there for flavor, but folks ended up reading into it. I should have realized that people would see it as a clue, so sorry about that.)
Synonyms are important.
Only one of the clues is a pun.
Why would someone on a farm wake up around sunrise?
Each main clue refers to a thing of mine which are all (more-or-less) of the same kind.
Bonus Clue 1:
I wish I had a job I was more passionate about.
Bonus Clue 2:
I have to put in a heroic effort just to get out of bed.
