My Best Job Ever


On Saturday, December 18, 1954, I got an after-school job at Woolworth’s in Muscatine for 75¢ per hour, maybe the best job ever, wearing a tall chef’s hat and handing out free hot cashew samples to entice customers to the candy counter.  That would be $6.50 per hour today – plus all the cashews you could eat.
