Not counting the lemonade stand I had with my sister when I was 10 years old, and the babysitting jobs I had since I was 12, my first real job in corporate America was at the age of 18.

I was 17 and I worked in a store of a family friend, but I did not get paid. Does that count?  I also babysat but it wasn’t a real job because they didn’t much. Today, baby sitters get a lot more.

Babysitters do get paid a lot these days. When I babysat my cousin for 5 days a week during one summer, I got paid $15 per week. I was 16 and met a cute boy at the park where he was working as the playground attendant, so I took her there every day. It wasn't a hardship watching my cousin all day long. [LOL]

That sounds like a reward.  Now they get like $80 an evening.

I was 9 and got paid $1 an hour which wasn't bad money at the time.

At 9, any income is good.  What was your job?

That’s a fun job for a child.

Not when you are working 12+ hours 3 days in a row...but it WAS a learning experience.
