Students Should Not Have A Job

By Chloe Ellison

Homework, sports and hobbies already dominate most students’ lives. Why should they have to get a job on top of that? Out of all high school students, studies show that 75% are stressed, adding the responsibilities of a job on top of that will only increase that number. Students should not have to worry about the stress of getting a job and still fit in homework and a social life. 

Most jobs that a high school student will get do not teach the skills necessary for career advancement. These jobs are almost always tedious and lead students to develop negative views surrounding work. Although working will most definitely give you money for a social life, when will you have time to actually do the socializing? If students are spending their time when they are not working socializing, then they will not have much time for school work or sports. 

While getting a job during summer or doing small personal jobs on the weekends can be good to get money and not stress you out, getting a part-time job during the school year most likely will.

“The pressure of school is already hard enough and adding a job to that is really difficult,” sophomore Morgan Chairs said.
