I think kids should have a right to work because they could get a higher mark in their GCSEs and also giving them social skills

I strongly believe that kids should not have the right to work because due to their immaturity, they may put others and themselves to risk.

If kids were given the right to work, all that will happen is that it would take longer for the minimum wage to increase, as those without bills of their own (as they cannot legally own anything) would have no issue with it. It would also damage the economy as children would be filling job slots that adults need in order to stave off homelessness. A child has their parents to care for them financially, if you add onto that them taking a job that an adult could have, all you've done is put someone in financial jeopardy for a shallow reason.

If kids had a right to work, then they'd be doing teaching, factory work, and business, which they'll fail at. Some work is dangerous, and the inexperienced kids would either get injured, or possibly die.
