Shakespeare's father had many jobs, as a matter of fact. Some other interesting details:
He was a farmer.
He was the official town beer-taster.
He traded wool, and it is believed that he did this trading illegally.
He was a money lender - what might today be called a "loan shark".
John Shakespeare was fairly wealthy early on, but at some point he hit a low point. By the time Shakespeare was becoming a man, his father was losing respectability and out of the town records, meaning that he no longer held office.
See the eNotes biography of Shakespeare, linked below. Here's what it says about his father:
His parents, John and Mary (Arden), were married about 1557; she was of the landed gentry, he a yeoman—a glover and commodities merchant. By 1568, John had risen through the ranks of town government and held the position of high bailiff, similar to mayor.
A glover is a glove maker. A commodities merchant is like a department store owner.
shakespeare does a lot of things but thing that he does is likes to kiss on girls and having it with them to at least thats what i think.
