What was your first job?
Do you remember what you were paid per hour?

Crazy!

I babysat 3 kids after school for $25 a week when I was 12.

My first "real" job was Swiss Chalet and it was min wage which was like $6.95 or something an hour at the time.

My first paid job was babysitting 2 boys 10 hours a day for $2/hour. It sucked.

My first real job was a stripper in a factory making minimum wage, but I don't remember what that was now. I felt rich with my first paycheque, I was 14 or 15 at the time.

My first job was babysitting my neighbor's son, starting at 4:30 am! I was paid $20/day.

My first real job was waitressing and I made minimum wage ($6.75 at the time I think).
