You know what, just loosen it with a shovel and pull it out with a car.

Don't try that.
Once you've broken up the roots as suggested by wax, you could probably use a shovel or something long to gain some leverage by shoving it under the stump and pushing it out. Just be careful, as it's quite possible that the shovel will go flying if it becomes loose or the stump comes out. That is, if you don't have access to a truck to yank the trunk out.

Ubermensch hes giving me 15 per stump.
It's a ton of work to get the stump of anything other than a sapling out of the ground without some actual construction equipment.
Companies that do yardwork & landscaping services will charge $100 per stump. Easier methods require accelerating the rotting process over several weeks.

(No, don't actually do that.)

Try craft foam if you want to add cushioning to the handle.

Ah man...I can't wait to see FA24 rip a tree out of the ground with his bare hands.
I hear he used to practice karate in the Sahara Forest...

Use an Axe/Mattock/Spade and a shovel.
Manual Labor builds character.
Be a man! Use your hands!
Those are the two best pieces of advice I can agree with.
I can tell who actually does work hard with their hands, and whose idea of hard labor is taking out the trash.
I think your father is doing more than trying to pay you for chores. My 11-year old son doesn't pull out stumps, but he DOES haul bales of greenwaste to our composter, takes out the trash, breaks down cardboard boxes flat (sounds easy until you try breaking down 25-30 of them in 1/2 hour), and recycles aluminum and plastic containers on the property I manage and run. He's not strong by any means yet, but he's getting there!
I used my thigh as a guideline. If the stump is bigger than my thigh, I honestly find that my F-150 truck is the best way to pull it out. The bumper on the 150 is plenty strong enough to hold the chain (twin hooks plus trailer hitch), and you don't stomp the gas and try to yank it out. That'll probably lose your bumper (or kink it, at the very least). You use the torque and give it gas slowly and "rock" the stump out. And you still have to dig around the secondary roots; you can't hope to pull the stump out with the truck alon. With about six volunteers, we cleared out over 200 Hawaiian mesquite trees from an area the size of 1 1/2 football fields. We turned a forest into a play field, without heavy equipment.
Smaller than my thigh, or for saplings, I either have do dig it out, or if it's smaller, I have the best tool in the world for that. The Weed Wrench. Good workout, too. Pull the whole sapling out without digging.
Work hard. You'll be happy that you earned your money by more than begging for it.

Be a man! Use your dick!
The idea here is to use the leverage and swing the hips; you might need to dig a small starter hole to wedge yourself underneath the main part of the stump at first.
You also may want to practice on a few smaller stumps in the back woods before attempting a full-size phallic de-stumping procedure; guaranteed, though, if you bring along a few of the lady-types (try to find some who aren't too shy) to the main event you'll never sleep alone as long as you live in that town.

"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
