All Work and No Play

In 2017, the United States Department of Education reported that 81% of students were employed. High School students already have a lot of stress weighing on their shoulders because of school work, sports, and even different things that go on in their life. Not all high schoolers have to have a job, but there are several students that do have to have a job. Most of the Wayne City High School students do have to have a job or at least just want a job so that they will have something to do. Shelby Reed, a student who holds an after school job, said, “I believe that it’s a good thing for teens to have a job, but it does come with a lot of stress. Some people think working definitely is a good thing and helps teens get experience in the working world, but it also can cause a lot of stress. It can affect students with school work which can be a problem.
