I say kids in middle school shouldn't have jobs. If you're referring to jobs like working at McDonald's or something, then no. If its in school, then maybe. However, the usual age for someone applying for a job, if I'm right, is 15-16. Most kids in middle school around 10-13, average. Regardless, this could have an issue with safety issues, mainly for the kids. What would happen if a parent gets a call saying their child is in the hospital because the were hurt on the job.
if it is one of the fast food jobs then of course no. But for the good jobs like volunteering at a fire department or a vetranarian office, then that would be a whole hearted yes. That woul teach many life skills at an early age. And it would teach other valuable lessons as well.
Okay, I will agree that it would teach kids life lessons, the key word in your argument is "volunteer." The difference between a job and volunteering is that you don't get paid in one and the other you do. If that's the case, then why not have someone come and talk to these kids in middle school.
People do come and talk about jobs for middle school but from what I have seen they don't care or are to busy talking to there friends to even pay attention so the jobs I meant were like mowing lawns for like 5$ or baby sitting. Neve in a dangerous work place. And from personal experience in middle school, I've seen them not care and some even back talk a teacher over some stupid reason like pick up garbage or help this student out. So I think middle schoolers should have jobs like mowing lawns,babysitting,or raking leaves.
