    Re: How much did you make?

    First job- caddy at golf club - $10 for 18 holes in 1964.

    My first real job was at A&P (The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Co. for those who have never seen an A&P from 1965-1967. I worked on weekends and made 1.865 an hour. After that I worked summers for my dad on the railroad as a laborer when I was in college for $7 an hour.

    My first job out of college was my first teaching job in which I made all of $475 per month. That was 1972, and I thought I had enough to buy a car. Silly me.

    Back in my day you had to operate the projectors and do the film build, then sell tickets, clean up vomit, sell popcorn and wear a tie.

    It was great.

    Re: How much did you make?

    My first job was at McDonald's, but I'm having trouble remembering how much I made then. $3.85/hr? $4.15/hr? It was in 1991.

    My first "rea" job out of college, I was salaried at $17K. That was in 1998.

    Caddy in the mid 90s while in junior high school and I made approx. $30 a round, though it varied depending on the tip. In high school in the late 90s I was a warehouse associate and started at $7.70, and when I quit about nine months later was up around $8.25.

    Re: How much did you make?

    When I was 12 I started as a soccer referee, $6/game for the 5-year-olds. 18 years later, some of the high school leagues I work are up to $90 for a JV/Varsity doubleheader...and with all the crap we deal with, even that's not enough to keep people around.

    My first "real" job was senior year, pressure-washing semi trucks for $5/hr in the dead of winter.

    I had a paper route once. It was 2000 houses, or 2 dumpsters.

    There. My Mitch Hedberg fix is satisifed for the day.
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    Re: How much did you make?

    A penny a minute picking up debris from various lots (cleaning up builders' mess, before landscaping, etc).. But it was all cash, so I really stuck it to Uncle Sam
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
