Not in, but my first paycheck job wasn't until I was 16. I had been a lawn mower and babysitter for my life up until then (I had about a dozen lawns I mowed around the neighborhood). I worked as an usher in a movie theater in 1980. It was a single screen theater, one of the few remaining and has since closed. There are two things I learned that shocked me. One was how much money the government got (and continues to get). My first paycheck was nowhere near what I thought it should be. The other was that the job of projectionist at a theater had long since vanished and the movie was cut onto one giant reel that was threaded through the projector.
