What was your first job? Mine was probably babysitting my cousins. But my first real job was the summer between my 8th and 9th grade years of school, if memory serves me.
Pioneer Seeds came to our fair little city of Minneapolis Kansas towards the end of the school year offering a gold mine opportunity for those wanting a summer job. $1.40 per hour. Boys and/or girls, equal pay. I couldn’t suppress my excitement at making that kind of cash and I eagerly signed up, along with many classmates. We were going to own Minneapolis by the time summer ended.
