Depends on the job and the thing you love
For me, A job that pays well so that you have money to do the things you love. I like art, but there are many artists, and supplies are expensive. And it's not like the job I plan on going into is unbearable
Unless like, the pay difference is just..... Yeah. If the job I love is going to pay so poorly I'm practically eating out of a dumpster to survive, time to go with the one that pays well.
But if it pays at least decently, might as well be happy. Plenty of other things in life to make things miserable.
I've told myself that if you don't love your job, you're doing it wrong. Now, would I work somewhere where it would pay decently? Maybe. The way America functions right now, is that it takes most of your paycheck out for bills, etc, and I would love myself at least some money for leisure. However, I wouldn't want to work at a job that you don't necessarily like just for the money, as life is really short for most. Hell, I would gladly just take a job I love. If I love it, I'll feel happy and not regret any decisions that I've made, even if it means me working my ass off.
I personally say a job that pays well, and for I agree with what Renaria said here:
Granted, I'm unsure if I'll remain in America when I graduate college, or if I'll even go to college here. Luckily, the job I want both pays well and is something I see myself enjoying, I want to be a physical therapist. The same goes for the job I want to do while I'm in college, which is become a certified floral designer. Their salary varies from place to place, but I've seen a lot between $30K-$50K (across wedding, freelance, and just regular floral designers).
I agree business should pay their employees well but it's not the Government's place to set minimum wage. I recently learned about a man by the name of Thomas Sowell who actually worked for the part of the government at one point that set minimum wage and he discovered that minimum wage actually hurts the economy. The entire modern minimum wage argument only exists because too many adults have unskilled jobs meant for minors. The solution is to educate them preferably in a trade and get them into a skilled job so the unskilled jobs go to people who have never been employed before.
It hurts the economy? If it's that bad the economy is fragile to begin with. For example: many nations in Europe have implemented minimum wage in the last few years and still have quite robust economies. Of these Germany has the 4th largest economy in the world despite having a minimum wage which they update every year. A better example would be Japan, the 3rd largest economy behind only China and the US, which has different minimum wages decided annually amongst its many prefectures. So if you ask me, that it "hurts" the economy is by no means a reason no to implement it. It's not as if corporations cannot afford to pay minimum wage to all their workers, a thing that would ensure these workers don't have to figure out whether they want to pay rent, eat or buy clothing at the end of the month.
You also mention that many adults perform jobs intended for minors, can you clarify which jobs these are? I don't imagine any job is intended for solely for minors.
Not having the worries about living and surviving in the world as we have come to know it. The innocence of childhood is so underrated.
Fast Food, Gas Station, Restaurants, Movie Theaters, Stores also give me a sec to post a link to the vid
How are those jobs specifically intended for minors? Every single one of those jobs are predominantly filled by people older than 18. It shouldn't matter that they are low education jobs, workers still deserve to earn a pay with which they can afford living.
I'll watch it when I have time and also don't post twice in a row. You can edit your previous message to include anything you missed beforehand.
