Hello Ashley, You are correct to say that "Teens need jobs too!!" Teens grow fast and have expenses for their education and other stuff and a lot of parents cannot afford to keep up with these. I really like and respect teenagers when I see them get a job to help with their own expenses as well as helping out heir parents, if needed. When I was a teenager (a long time ago, LOL) my mother had 4 children including me and she could not afford to buy us school clothes and we had to wear "hand me downs." I got a work permit and started working after school at 16 years old, and not only bought my own clothes, but I helped my mother since she was a single parent. Today, things are NO different, and the price of clothes and other stuff has definitely gone up. So, my point of this reply is that I think it is a wonderful idea for teenagers to get a job so they can buy their own stuff and help out their parents, also. I give you, as well as other teenagers BIG TIME credit for getting a job and being responsible also.
