虽然安德鲁卡内基后来成为百万富翁,但他并不是一开始就怎么有钱的。他于1835年出生在一间位于苏格兰丹弗姆林 (Dunfermline) 的劳工阶级的家庭中,三年后,他的家庭移民美国并定居在宾夕法尼亚州的匹兹堡。当卡内基13岁大时,他在一家纺织工厂内查找了他的第一份工作,每个礼拜的薪资所得是$1.20。您的第一份工作始于几岁?然后他在一家工厂内,查找一份负责照管蒸汽引擎的工作。您猜猜看,这份工作付他多少钱?

Although Andrew Carnegie became a millionaire, he did not start life as one. He was born in 1835 into a working-class family in Dunfermline, Scotland. Three years later his family immigrated to the United States and settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. When Carnegie was 13 he got his first job in a textile mill earning $1.20 a week. How old were you when you got your first job? He then took a job in a factory tending the steam engine. Can you guess how much he was paid for that job?
