How much should I get paid for this job?

I am getting a job doing AutoCad for a small machine shop in town, and I will probally just be doing around ten hours a week, since I am still in high school. However, how much do you think a basic autocad drafter should be paid per hour, as I feel that they might be trying to cheat me do to the fact that it is my first job and that I am a high schooler. Thanks!
