We are currently living in the era of automation which means that many of the after-school jobs will be gone for students who are in High School looking to earn some extra cash during the summer months! Is it worth it for them to look for a job anymore with robots gobbling up all the physical repetitive labor once given to 16-year-olds who are saving to purchase their first car?
One solution for all of this would be for tech skills to be taught in today’s education system. Learning technical skills now could even allow many teens to possibly start online businesses in fields like graphic design by learning to use programs like Adobe and apps like Canva!
What will your teens be doing for work this Summer?
