What is the normal pay for teen jobs?

I'm seeking my very first job and I was just wondering from people with past experiences with their very first teen job what the monthly income would be, because I have no clue.

I just started a new job at $8.00 per hour. and where I live, that is good for anyone. because I have some experience in the field I now work in (photography, and not just point-and-shoot, I mean REAL photography). most others start at 7.15. so I am not complaining right now. I hope I can go up to ten soon though.

Minimum wage + however many hours you work = monthly income.

uhm.. Im 15 years old and I get paid 12 an hour for my summer job. But I live in Oregon and the pay is generally higher here considering we have the second highest minimum wage in the U.S. It kinda depends where you live, but teenagers generally get paid minimum or a bit more.

7-8 bucks for retail/resteraunt 10-12 bucks for general labourer. Dont work for less than 10. because really no job is only worth 8 bucks an hour. even 10 is pretty hurting. but if you have no skills and no exp, you have to start some where.

There are several factors that are involved. What are your skills? w***************e? Country or City life? Usually minimum wage, but if you do something like a call center, then it could be more. Everywhere is different. Good luck job hunting.
