Re: A tale from 1977

"At 16 I left school with few qualifications. My first job was as a "key boy" in a large amusement arcade in the seaside town of Morecambe. 80 hours and £20 a week."

You was done over good and proper! I started my first job in 1977 too. Part time, because I stayed on into 6th form. 20 hours over Sat and Sun at the local swimming pool for a take home of £20. Four times what you got for sitting on my arse all day handing out and collecting towels in the Sauna suite :-)
