Started cutting neighbors grass at about 7, but my first real job was cutting, spearing and hanging tobacco. I got paid 35 cents an hour and thought I was going to be rich!!!!

Besides helping my Mom do babysitting, my first 'real' job was at the fabric counter/craft department at Woolco.

Busboy/Dishwasher at a busy truck stop diner. Owner used to pay me in singles and always tried to short change me, like I couldn't count!

Cutting grass and general upkeep of the grounds at St. John's school and church when I was 12 for $2.50 an hour. I also started doing hay/straw and tobacco for the Hollywood farmers at 12 for $4.50. My first job where I had to claim taxes was a dish washer for St. Mary's Hospital at 16 for a whopping $6.75. You would be shocked at what the patients and nurses send down on those trays sometimes.
