As a teenager I worked two jobs; the first was a Sax Food and Drug, a grocery store and the second was at Plants and Things, where I took care of all the plants and outside furniture. Etzioni would think that I was not a good student, meaning that because I worked two jobs I wouldn’t be doing well in school, I would be making money that was solely for me and I would not be learning any valuable lessons from these jobs. I have to disagree with Etzioni, I worked these two jobs so I could go to college after high school and not have to work. I saved my money for things I would need living on campus. I also did very well in high school, graduating with a 3.8 grade point average, being a member of National Honors Society and graduating in the top of my class. I did not by frivolous things. Yes I had to pay for my own car insurance and car payment, but that taught me responsibility. I wanted to be an adult and my parents showed me that being an adult has financial responsibilities. The support that Etzioni uses is a study done in 1984 by Ivan Charper and Bryan Shore Fraser; about what teenagers write in response to questionnaires rather than actual observations of fast-food skills. I don’t feel that he supports he arguments very well. Some things he mentions like there is no room for initiative or creativity may be true but saying there is no room for entrepreneurship or self-discipline is, I feel, false. For example; my brother has a job at Jimmy Johns, a fast food sandwich shop; he was 16 when he started there, he made subs and ran the cash register. Today he is now the general manager for one of the shops and is getting ready to be the regional manager for four shops in northern Minnesota. So yes, some places may not have the creativity or initiative that he refers to, such as McDonalds or Burger King, but there are many of those same companies that do offer my advancement opportunities, if the teenager wants to

Part-time Jobs for Students
There is much debate nowadays concerning students and part-time jobs, whether they are a good thing or bad. Part time jobs can take time away from schoolwork, true, but students who work 10 to 15 hours a week during the school year earn higher grades than students who don’t work at all. I strongly encourage students to seek out part-time employment. Part-time jobs for students are good because they teach time management, responsibility and set students up for the world….
you are likely to have both a fair amount of spare time and a desire to earn some money. By working to earn money yourself, you can learn a lot about the value of things as well as the world of business.
