True confession time: My eyes roll back in my head when I hear ditz-brains like Occasional-Cortex, I-llama or Tflab lecturing us on how HARD it is for people to work their way up and why they need a $15 or $20 per hour minimum wage.
I invite you to share how much you made per hour when you started working and what you did.
Me? My first "real job" paid $2.35/hour hanging guard rail in parking lots and cleaning carpets. My first job out of college paid the princely sum of $11/hour and I was on top of the world. And the Progressives claim I am rich.
If $10/hour is not enough to live on it is because stooges like Occasional-Cortex debased the dollar.
So, if you don't mind sharing...how much an hour did you make in your first "real" job?
