Yes. My 1st job was at a Sunoco gas station. I was paid $3.35 an hour.

I left that job for the Marines and never worked another minimum wage job.

I don't think I ever have.

I used to do farmwork for $1-2/hour in high school. My college job paid around $15/week plus room and board. Other college jobs I had paid between $6 and $8/hour.

My first job as a night receptionist at the community centre, $5.15/hr. I also worked there as a summer camp counselor for $150/week. Not sure how they got away with that.

My 1st job paid £12.36 a week in 1974. I was an apprentice coach builder for Rolls Royce. So that was 0.31p an hour. There was no minimum wage in the UK then.

Today that would be £3.57.At present the minimum wage for a 16-18 year old apprentice is £3.70 an hour so it would be just below.

However before I started work there, the workforce had been on strike for most of the summer and had reached a settlement with the management, so after 2 weeks my pay went up to over £22.00. I didn't count the pennies after that. I took another job in 1975 and inflation was so high I got 4 pay rises in a year (or maybe I was just darn good at my job) but it totaled an extra £10.

McDonalds's for $4.25 was my first job.

Some mall jobs where I didn't stay long. Another job where I started minimum wage and would get little 20 or 30 cent raises here and there.

Not really sure, but doubtfull, i got about 17US an hour on disability pension now. More when i worked and people can earn less than that, though not many.

Yes, my first job was at Subway for $5.75/hour. I only worked there a couple of months before I decided that food service was not for me.

When I worked at Target while I was finishing college, I made $6.25/hour.

$7/hr. as a home health aid. I worked in that job for 10 years and still never made it to $9/hr.
