负责照管蒸汽引擎的卡内基每星期可赚$2。隔年,卡内基在一家电报室内担任信差一职,一星期可得$2.50因为他的动作迅速且工作努力,很快就被擢升为电报操作员,而周薪也涨到$5。卡内基一步步但稳定的往上爬。1853年时,宾州铁路公司的督查史考特任命他为他的私人秘书兼电报员,薪资为一个月$35。为史考特工作时,卡内基学到了所有与铁路工业有关的知识并于稍后成为督查。另外,史考特也教安德鲁如何在股票市场投资。您对股票市场的了解有多少?
 

Carnegie earned $2 a week tending a steam engine. The next year, Carnegie worked as a messenger boy in a telegraph office for $2.50 per week. Because of his quickness and hard work, he was soon promoted to telegraph operator and was paid $5 a week. Slowly but surely, Carnegie was working his way up. In 1853, he went to work for the Pennsylvania Railroad for $35 per month as the personal telegrapher and assistant to Thomas Scott, a superintendent. Under Scott, Carnegie learned all about the railroad industry and later became a superintendent himself. Scott also taught Andrew about investing in the stock market. What do you know about the stock market?
