The Daily Grind

Is it a good idea for a student to have a job? Why or why not?

Brandon Smith

I’m a junior in high school, and I have a part-time job in a restaurant. I bus dishes on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 until 4:00. I earn $5.50 an hour. It isn’t much money, but I save almost every penny! I want to go to a good university, and the cost goes up every year. Of course, I spend some money when I go out on Saturday night.

Lauren Russel

I’m a senior in high school. I have a job as a cashier in a grocery store. The job pays well - about $6.75 an hour. I work every weeknight after school from 4:00 until 8:00. I don’t have time for homework, and my grades aren’t very good this year. But I have to work, or I can’t buy nice clothes and I can’t go out on Saturday night. Also, a car costs a lot of money.

Erica Davis

I’m a freshman in college. College is very expensive, so I work in a law office for three hours every weekday afternoon. I make photocopies, file papers, and sort mail for $8.25 an hour. The job gives me good experiences because I want to be a lawyer someday. But I don’t want to work every semester. I need some time to study.
