  • A trades union. (welder, carpenter, bricklayer, electrician, plumber etc) The truly experienced tradesperson can make good $$$. I know, hubby is union bricklayer, son & fil are union welders, father is a retired steelworker.

  • Before I went to school-I was a grill cook and made 13.50 an hour. You could look into it-requires quick learning!

  • Maybe a receptionist or secretary? My daughter works at a Chiropracters office front office/therapy
    and she makes $12 an hour but there was another place she applied at who offered her $7.50 so I suppose it just depends on the business. I worked as an office manager for a Dialysis clinic several years ago and made $10 an hour. I think now days employers are looking for experienced or at least trained but new employees and they try and pay as little as possible.

  • Depends on where you are. I work at a health insurance company and we start off customer service reps and other entry level jobs around $12. Another insurance company around here starts around $12-14 for the same types of jobs. We go thru temp agencies also and they pay around $11. Thats a good way to get your foot in the door. Try some temp agencies for clerical work. Usually large fortune 500 type companies pay more. I started entry level making $10 hour in 2001, now I make $19 an hour at Blue Cross Blue Shield.
