In the article, “Is It Fair to Pay Teens Less Than Adults?” (Upfront, Unknown, 2022) I learned that some places pay teens less than adults. But it is not really fair to have teens who are young, working long hours. It can be bad for society as well, as teens can drop out of high school and join jobs all of a sudden. However, it is not fair to discriminate against teens who need to work for money to pay expenses. They may need jobs to pay for college, textbooks, loans, and other very important things.
I think it is not fair to pay teens less than adults, as well as discriminate against them. They may need a job to help their parents or themselves. Colleges may be expensive for them to go. It may be a good idea to have teens working as those who are older than them can no longer work and retire, instead of working and working every day.
Do you think this is fair?
