What was your first “real” job?
The first job for which I earned money was working in the music department at my high school. I organized and filed music in the library. I believe that I made about $1.25 per hour. When I graduated from high school in 1974, I spent that summer working at Straw Hat Pizza for $2.00 per hour. I saved up enough money to buy myself a beautiful Fender classical guitar. I still have it.
