Everbody knows that you have to be at least 14 and above to get a job but the problem is that there are few oppurtunities for 14 and 15 years olds to get a job. Heres a fact that 14 and 15 year olds can only work for 3 hours after school time and 16 year olds can only work 8 hours after school ok the thing that makes me mad is the 15 and 16 year old thing
I think 15 and 16 teen year olds should have the same rights to getting a job or at least extend the job oppurtunies so a 15 year old can work at Mcdonalds or a fast food place or something and extend the hours to the point where we won’t be turned away for the employer saying "you can’t work here because the law says you can’t work this many hours".
My mother is a single parent and if we were still living in the apartment that we used to live in with the in IF me that we had most of our utilities would probaly be cut off. My father he pays child support but not enough to help he’s a goood father but sometimes he doesn’t have the money for us and makes it woulf have made it hard for my mother to survive on the income that she had the thing i’m trying to say is this needs to change to all the future 16 teen years olds out there this needs to chage me and my mother and brother don’t live in that apartment anymore we haven’t lived there in years but If something happened to the person that we are renting from now [fyi: my grandmother] my mother would not be able to support two kids so that why we need these jobs and the money I understand that kids to young like 13 maybe fourteen I don’t know should have to work less hours and have the restrictions but [fyi: i’m 14 now]
we need to stop depending on our parents because children in this country are blind deaf and dumb when it comes to what we can and cannot not do and our say in politics. we also need the money so we can ssave for a new car and college [ if we go] so that we don’t have to depend on our parents what if you have no parents what if you have no money the sooner you are able to get a job the more money you’ll have for college and the more for what you want so your parents can have less of a problem when it comes to money. I hate it when I use something and someone tells me no because when I want something in the store and i’m fourteen and tell me " if you don’t like it then get a job" then I would say " I tried and they wouldn’t hire me beacuse of the labor laws" I’m in highschool and I have to wait till my sophmore year to enjoy my teen years and it’s upsetting me and my friends wanted to go to a movie we had to make a planing process and come up with the money from our parents our parents paid for it and drove us if the rights for 15 year olds labor we’re to the point where I could get a job and a food places most teens in highschool would enjoy all four years of there teen days life is short and we should enjoy it most when your young and besides it’s good that us teens want to get a job it will take up our time so we won’t be smoking weed or contracting STD’s because we have nothing to do. I think adults would like it more if we were out working hard for the economy trying to help ourselves then sell’in crack on the streets or worst .
If you agree then right on but something has to change about this. but on to the subject about what every bodies talknig about
one adult told me that there our predators out there that watch the kids at work and might try to make a move
I had said there is no sure way to protect your children from anything the child predator could be the child’s father or mother or even teacher I know because my brother’s teacher tried to get sex from a minor off the internet.
child predators are everwhere even in my neighborhood there are alot of them in my neighbor hood and lots of small children playing out side isn’t that called child endangerment with all these predators. besides the only reason we children have been put done by adults for to long one of the reason why kids don’t know what to do when faced with a predator is beacuse adults tell us to keep quiet and respect adults and I should stop now beacuse this is kinda long. and I gots to go now, but if I ever get into a debate about this issue I would win
