    Depends on how you look at it. I worked for Gateway, and was paid $14/hr and worked 50hrs a week in 4 days. I did technical work. I later worked for a company called Youngquist Brothers Incorporated, doing deep injection wells. I was paid $14/hr and worked anywhere from 60 to 80 hours a week in 5 days, with 3 days off. First 5 days was 7am to 7pm, after three days off we switched to 7pm to 7am. But the work was not guaranteed to be 60-80 hrs a week. Sometimes we'd go a week without work, or only be allowed to work 20-40hrs a week depending on what needed to be done.

    Not current job? I was a pet's associate at Wal-Mart for $9.25 an hour. My current job is my highest-paying job, and there are plenty of times I've doubled up my Wal-Mart wages in a month even after I've paid my team members.

    Many years ago I worked as an Aeradio Operator with the now defunct Australian Department of Civil Aviation.   The basic pay was pretty mediocre, but the take home pay was incrediblily good.  This is because they paid penalty rates for out of normal hours work, double time on Sundays, Triple time on Public Holidays, and there was always heaps of overtime.

    Whilst doing this work in Papua-New Guinea, where income tax as only 10%, a man could live like a king.   Yep, this would have been my best paid job.

    The downside:  an awful lot of hours of work, and little time to spend with the family.

    Well, I worked in a oncology & stem cell research lab during my sophomore year for a measly $10.00/hr as a lab tech/assistant.

    Forex Broker, I made figures in a day. I opened and managed client forex accounts. It was not easy getting to that point. I worked a ton of hours and had to open some pretty significant accounts. That could change, I hope it does. I own enough equity in the business I currently work for to make 7 figures in a day. If we can reach an IPO, it might be VP of Investor Relations.

    Retail store management.  I " officially "  retired before I was 40.   8 figures..........sent 3 girls to college, own property in 3 states, 7 vehicles all paid for, free and clear.

    Today, I manage a kitchen, because it is my calling to feed others.

    I would rather sleep on the couch than on my king sized bed.........not bad for a poor farm girl.
