Today I was going through a box that my sister gave me. It had some cloths, knick knacks and also my high school diploma and tech school diploma. I was looking at the diplomas, and there were several folded up papers. Couldn't believe what I opened up! It was her time ticket/pay stub from her high school job that she had during her school years.
I graduated in 1965, and had started working as a "car hop" at the Dixie Drive-In since I was 14 years old. I didn't remember that my sister followed me in the work endeavor! My sister graduated in 1967, so she must have started working there about the time I was done. Oh my - do you think there was a minimum wage back then. Don't think so. This slip, shows that she worked 60 hours for .75 cents a hour! Then looking closer, you'll see that after the gross earning, the taxes were subtracted, and ALSO the shortage she had for that pay period! Oh I laughed. After all said and done, for the 60 hours from Aug 16 through Aug 31, 1965, she got a whoping $29.82! So kids today. Do you want a job for those wages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
