Re: How much did you make?
I made $10 an hour as a secretary in high school. I made the same amount as a research assistant in undergrad. Additionally, I did some babysitting as favors to my parents' friends. One of my mom's friends had me babysit her toddler daughter from 5 pm - 1 AM, and then slipped me a bill as I walked out the door. It was a $20 (for 8 hours of babysitting). Keep in mind this was the year 2000 I believe.
