50 cents per hour in 1970 as an apprentice. Apprentice's were paid half the journeymans wage - so in 1970 a mechanic in New Zealand was earning $1 per hour.

$1.85/hour in 1965 and this included the third shift bonus. Textile mill babysitting 4 huge machines that refined raw wool and ended up as rough thread on 4 foot spindles.

$4/hr back in '93 I think, working in a grocery store. Wasn't my first job, IIRC I had been picking blueberries that summer and probably made around $5+/hr doing that--but it was not hourly work.

IIRC, it was $5.75/hr working for a Tree Service company near our cottage. Pretty much just general labouring: Picking up brush, dismantling dock cribs, hauling gravel, shovelling....etc.

1971, $1.90 per hour. Minimum wage in NY at the time was $1.85, so I was doing all right making more than the minimum.

somewhere in the late 90's I was paid $5:50 an hour....

that was the job that paid the bills. I also made $1 per bundle to carry shingles up to the top of a roof, and a similar wage to work on a sod farm...both cash at the end of a day. I made my fun money on this, but paid the bills with the steady $5:50 an hour at Subway.

Wow--I thought I was making decent money at $7.00 for concrete labor in the mid-1990s.

I got a monthly salary for working on the farm in the 1980s, starting at age 11. I did the math once, and hourly pay for my last year worked out to either $1.35 or $1.85. My first job in town paid $3.35. I think I was there for the raise to $4.25 in about 1990.
