What is the least amount of money you've ever worked for?
One summer I worked at a retreat camp mowing huge fields twice a week and clearing high weeds and small trees. Plus, I was a camp counselor for the youth who attended during that time. The owner wasn't able to pay much: only $100 a week. After 40 rigorous hours that computes to $2.50 per hour!
My first job was working at a grocery store for $4.10 an hour back in 1987. Seemed like a lot of money at the time!
I've got ya beat. I worked in a small dollar store my senior year of high school through a school program and was paid $2.25/hr. I still think the owner of the store was a penny pincher. Minimum wage was $4.25 at the time (1993.)
I've taken some online surveys that pay about $0.50 for a twenty minute survey. That equates to about 1.50 an hour. I don't really know if that counts or not though.
In high school (early 70's) I worked as an usher at a movie theater. I was paid $0.90/hr. But, I got to see free movies at my theater (while working) and I got passes to see the movies at the other theaters (and drive-ins, remember them?) in town. All I had to pay for was the popcorn!
I live in India so the least I've ever worked for was Rs.10(which is very less money) when I was about 6. I got it for being able to pick up the heavy laundry basket and put it in the laundry room without stumbling. I still burst out laughing when I think about it. It's that funny!
I used to have to walk my grandmas' dogs religiously for hours and I would only get a dollar in return. It's nothing official, but it still sorta counts. I walked those dogs more for the love of my grandma and the dogs. I mean, what was I going to do with a dollar?
She's become less stingy with her money in her old age because I get about $20 just for mowing her yard which only takes 2 hours.
I worked in an automobile garage for nothing to learn how to work on cars, and it has lasted me all through life. (You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day, or you can teach him to fish and feed him for life.)
I once did a wrestling charity show for 20 bucks. It was great. I put in 20 minutes in a 4 way match and basicly took gas money out and gave the rest to the charity.
i worked for $150(PKR 14,000) as teacher in lahore(pakistan) in 2004.. it was my first job and lowest paid...
now i am teaching in girls college and make around $500 per month.
I have worked for 31$ till now ,, was just a link selling ,,,
That's easy.! Hubpages.... I've put hours and hours of work and research into my hubs. So far a grand total of $2.29. I can't even start to work it out per hr.
I once worked for 60 cents an hour as a waitress in a family restaurant. That was 55 years ago...and I didn't last long on that job.
I also have worked for free as a volunteer in a big state park in South Dakota. It was one of the best summers I ever had.
