Here are some ststistics for you lazy teens out there that will suprise you.
I work for 5 Hours a day on weekends for $7 and around 5$ in tips an hour. So for $12 an hour, I make around $120 a WEEK.
Now, I also get $6 a week from allowance, so thats $126 a week. But the monety doesn't stop there.
Every week I deposit the take of last week into a CD that has a monthly compound intrest of 3.7%.
So, let's say I put on the $504 I get in a month in the bank. I get(504x.037), or more than 18 EXTRA! Talk about money making money!
So if you think you can't make money grow fast, just work a little extra, and trust me, itt'l grow.
Do you like to go out and buy things? Well I do and I don't want to have to go to my parents for it. The fact is that some parents don't have the money to give to their children.
That's why I think that kids should be able to go out and get jobs. Everyone wants money. It is a requirement for someone who is healthy.
And I think that if younger people want to work, why not let them? It has come to my attention that I usually don't have much money, but if I had a job that would change.
I am not saying that money is everything, but if you want something you have to have it. Money is not the root to all evil, the love of money is, so I think if kids are willing to work for it, why not give them a chance.
