From part-time jobs to careers


Matthew Henry on Burst

The world runs more smoothly when people have paying jobs.

When adults ask children about their imagined futures, they are usually asking about their future careers. Under a capitalist system like ours, money is required to sustain a comfortable lifestyle and, to acquire that, a job is often needed.

According to societal expectations, everyone is expected to work a job once they become adults, but, some start even earlier with part-time jobs in high school, which is the focus of this May 15 edition of The Armijo Signal.

Some of the most popular jobs that high schoolers seek are in retail, babysitting, dog walking, pet sitting, or services. Since these low-effort jobs are always in demand and have flexible hours, they are the perfect gateway into learning how to earn a paycheck.
