High school students get a job at a young age for money that most reason for everyone at any age. Juggling work for 3-4 hours

Going to high school is difficult enough but handling a hard working job along with it is extremely difficult.Some people can handle pressure but most of them can not. 1 in 4 of high school students at the age of 16 work. That's more than 3 million workers nationwide. Only 1% of students work full time and that 1% is home school on an online school. I interviewed two graduates, one who graduated with a job and how her high school year went and one who graduated without a job and why and why not she had a job in high school. The number of employed 16 and 17 year old are roughly around 24,000 on a seasonally adjusted basis. The unemployed for 16-19 year old teens increased to 26.4 percent with close to half of these unemployed teens( 49.8 percent) searching for a job for the first time.

14 and 15 year old students are only permitted to work during non school hours for only three hours per day. Up to 18 hours in a school week. On a non school day they can work up to eight hours and total of 10 hours on a non school week. Unemployment rate 3.9 for high school grades in August 2018. Getting good grades and participating in extracurriculars can help you get into a 2 or 4 year college with a scholarship. A big group of high school graduates that did not have a job in high school go to college for a college degree to apply to high paying jobs. High paying jobs need a college degree to apply.

High School student had to go to work more than school. Does not get accepted into college because lack of school.

I recently interviewed two people on their experience with high school and handling a job or not. The first person i interviewed was Mackenzie Wilson.Mackenzie went to Templeton High School. She had a job when she was in high school. Her difficulties and her strength was properly shown in this interview.

I also interviewed Victoria Wilson who in fact did not have a job in high school. She went to Paso Robles High School. Graduated in 2014 without a job. She had a different experience.
