  • does babysitting count? If so I was 13 making 2.50 an hour for 3 kids. If not then I was a volenteer at the hospital as a candy striper when I was 13 and if that don't count because I wasn't paid then it was when I was 15 it was a summer job I don't remember how much I was making though, but I was working in a daycare with latch key kids lol
