In the article “The Teens Fighting for $15 an Hour,” I learned that teenagers aren’t getting paid enough or as equally as other workers. Age doesn’t matter, most teens take care of themselves so they need the money too. However, these teens are now fighting for their raise this can make a difference to their quality of life. Teens all over the world are fighting for a raise. They raised awareness in their communities by posting on social media, marching, canvassing, making videos, and meeting with legislators.
I think this is happening because people think younger shouldn’t get paid as much as adults because they think younger people don’t have the capabilities and skills. I believe they shouldn’t be doing this to young people because they are our future. It’s for young people like myself sooner or later I would need a job to support myself at a young age.
Would you fight for a raise for teens?
