I'm really lucky b/c my Dad is hiring me this summer. He and my cousin owns an electrircal supply and fixture warehouse/wholesaler. So I get to work in the warehouse earning minimum wage. It's not glamorous work, but I have earning power which is what matters. And I'm working ~full time (40-44 hours/week)

Been working since i was 15, and lucky i have never
had trouble finding a job. Restaurant industry is always
hiring guys.

And It pays good too, serving you will probably make about
10 - 15 dollars an hour, and working in the kitchen will normally
pay about 8 - 10 dollars an hour.

I did that for at least two years and ended up really hating it towards the end of my stay.
