My first job was delivering newspapers to retail stores under the table for cash. I did this Saturday Night/early Sunday morning for two years in highschool. I made $120 a night doing it. Which is not bad considering it was 4-5 hours of my time and I didn't pay taxes on it.

My first legitimate job was making $11 an hour right out of high school working at a food processing plant.

$12 dollars an hour as an EMT in 2007 for a private ambulance. Needed to get out of there quick, but it was good experience and got me to where I am now.

It's a fucking shame paramedics are paid less than waitress

VisualMaster

Its more complex. Paramedics can and actually are paid a comfortable family wage.

I work for a fire-department as a Paramedic and make $30 an hour (salaried) and $45 an hour overtime (which is unlimited).

You will never be rich as a Paramedic, but its not a minimum wage job as many think.

The problem is most data and most people assume an EMT is a Paramedic and at that, all EMS jobs are "the same".

An EMT for a private ambulance has 250 hours of training (3 months of community college). By the time you are a lead Paramedic working for a 911 service you at a minimum have an associates degree and an additional 1-2 years of training (academy, merit badge certifications, classes). So the pay reflects that. For those of us with bachelors degrees and beyond in a relevant field the pay is equal to other folks of equivalent education/training.

26 on average. Was fundraising for charity on the street. Started at 5/hour but got a 15 euro bonus for every person recruited. Its a highly competitive job, and 9/10 people quit within the month because they suck at pitching on urgency and desire to help.

Calling bull shittery, vidya testing is lucrative as fuck, plus they usually give you one tiny section of the game and ask for a minimum time of something like 3 hours to be spent on that tiny fucking area, then you're supposed to file fucking bug reports, and they pay more than $12 an hour. I got almost $34 an hour.

$8 Canadian for assembly line packaging work when I was 14. Very heavy job on the body, worked by immigrants, or local autists who couldnt get service jobs. Its the reason I went to university, seeing this kind of shit and how it breaks down peoples bodies and how shitty they are to each other made me want to get away from it all
