My son worked part-time at 7/11 and I thought his getting 1000 yen/hour was pretty generous considering I flipped burgers at Burger King in high school for 2.25 dollars/hour. In any case, he didn't like it, especially rude customers and having to show up early for unpaid preparation. He then taught at a juku for like triple that amount and I strongly suggest that he become a professional or start his own business.

Doing math using assumptions, I'm guessing you were in high school around 1975. With inflation, that 2.25 is a little over 11.00/hour in today's money.
