The first jobs of the 2016 presidential candidates

The 2016 presidential candidates all have impressive résumés. Hillary Clinton, for instance, was a first lady, a senator, and a US secretary of state. But before all that, she held a few less glamorous jobs.

Clinton briefly worked at a salmon cannery in Valdez, Alaska, where she was hired to scoop out fish guts. It didn’t last long, though. She was “kicked out” of the job for working too slowly and questioning the quality of the fish. But her first job was less unusual. She was a babysitter – a job that pays about $10 an hour in today’s market, according to salary site PayScale.
