My Uncles Helper Age 10
The first “job” I can remember was working for my Uncle Sol. He was a sheet metal worker and on weekends he was always working around his house. I’d go over each Saturday to help him – ten cents per day. This added to my weekly allowance of twenty-five cents per week provided me with all the spending money I needed.
The additional benefit of learning all kinds of useful things. Like how to use a saw, hammer, level, etc. My main task was to clean up during our working. I never forgot this and have practiced cleaning while working so your work area is neat and organized. Each tool had to go back where it came from after use. A well organized work environment is an advantage to success.
