First job at 13 was a paper route in St. Paul delivering the Pioneer Press in the A.M. and Dispatch in the afternoon in the North End. Some help from mom and dad on Sundays but did all the collections myself.
Then after moving to WBL worked at Hoffman Corner Grocery in Gem Lake. $1.80 an hour with perks. For lunch the butcher would cut you a much lunchmeat as you wanted for lunch on the house.
