The website eHow has instructions and tips for finding your employment history. I will run over the main points.

The best place to start is by going back to companies that you know you worked for. Contact their human resources departments and they will be able to tell you the dates you started and finished at that company as they should have this information on file.

Second, check old tax returns and forms. On this you should have companies that have paid you money and the tax you had to pay on your income from different companies. Legally you need to keep a record of tax returns for a number of years after they're submitted. So you should be able to find these forms.
If you worked for the government of for a company of the state conduct a public records search. All the money that the council or government pays out can be found on record. So your salary and position, etc... Should be online to view.

Lastly, an idea might be to contact a company that researches your background. They will be able to find past employments for you, but it will cost you a bit of money. One example of a company that will search public records in the UK is a website called www.backcheck.co.uk They will perform a comprehensive background check on you, bringing up more than just previous employers. However, for more information you will need to call an 0800 number (0800 072 7048) which may cost a significant amount.

If you mean how much you made each year worked - if you file your taxes - Social Security should send it to you automatically.  If not, contact your SS office and request a summary.
