When I was a child the only thing we could do to get money was to chop cotton or pick cotton in the fall. Sometimes my "Ma" Carothers would want me to go under the house to hunt for a hen's nest and get the eggs. She would give me a nickel to do something for her. My first public job was when I was in high school. I worked at the 5 and 10 cent store at Henderson during Christmas.
