Me being 12 and wanting to work at macdonalds is kind of the base of my argument. Because I don't feel like waiting 2 years to get a job there. And to work at a place like Dixie lee you have to be 15 wich I think is stupid - _-. The minimum work age should be limited to atleast 12, cause you know there at 12 year olds other than me out there that want or need a summer job to get money and with a age limit of 14 or 15 I cant. -_- ive been waiting 12 years to get a job and I don't feel like waiting any longer to get a job-_-
Many families nowadays require financial aid, or like food stamps, for example. They have parents who may be incapable of finding a job due to certain obstacles, such as age, disabilities, etc. Regardless, if younger people start working, they will gain the work experience needed in the future, thus allowing them to become more successful.
I do believe that some jobs in countries should have younger ones working for them. A couple problems I see with it is that the younger ones may want to stick to the job they are given early in life because it would be like one of many known traits that they stick with because it was introduced early to them. Also that depending on how young you would like to say, it would be hard for some to pay attention and correctly do their work. I would say the solid age of 12 for very minor jobs like basic cleaning, and basic order taking. The age of 12 is when the human mind starts to really get a hold of what school is and they start to see some more responsibility. I think that there should be volunteering for certain higher end jobs for kids to figure out what they like. I am sure there's types of jobs like that, but it would be amazing for younger one's to truly get to see and express them selves on the subjects they like. They may even choose a career early on like I did myself. I chose to become a mechanical engineer at age 13 because of my father telling me stories and showing me environment of a engineering work place and how things roll there.
But for basic jobs that do not require much educational skill except for regular adding and subtracting to understanding time management. Which most kids at that age should have an alright understanding of, I think it would teach the preteens and those like them responsibility and the value of the currency they live with. Almost going back to wild western times, shop keepers would reward the kids for sweeping up the shop, or making deliveries with some money or food. It was a simpler time with less safety pillows for the people around them. But it helped those who had those jobs gain better jobs and already be able to work more efficiently than a new person to the job.
