My first job was in 8th grade as a referee for 5-year-old soccer games. It was zone soccer (you know, where the field is separated into little squares resulting in way less exerted energy than real soccer), and I was paid about $8/hr. Now, kids find their first job on sites like www.MyFirstPaycheck.com. Tutors wanted for "Ivy bound" - apparently the WASPiest tutoring company around - can make between $30 and $50 an hour - what?! That's about what I'm making right now. Thanks a lot, mom and dad, for totally ripping me off paying me 5 bucks to wash the car. Now I clearly don't value myself high enough. So, those of you reading this who are unfortunate enough to have a teenager (or I guess maybe you are one), this is a great site as long as you live in the New York, D.C. or Philly area.
