Being only fifteen years of age, it is rather difficult to find a job. There are only two places in town where I can work at this age. Parents hassle their kids to pay for things on their own- clothes, cars, ect. It is extremely hard to pay for things with just your allowence. I understand some kids are too 'immature' to work, but there are also some who are efficent, and eager to work. Lowering the working age to fifteen, would help teens learn about finances and responsibility. It would also keep them off the streets, away from drugs, and other bad influences. I would prefer using my free time to earn money- in a different way besides bussing tables.
