Absolutely not! Pay difference based on age? Not only is that unconstitutional, but that sounds an awful lot like child labor. Plus, working in the plant, these days....how is that really any more difficult than working in a fast food restaurant? Everything's automated. In both facilties. >_>;
I agree that the man will put the money to better use than the child, but creating pay differences like that doesn't solve the problem, it makes it much, much worse.
Besdies, not all teenagers earn money just to waste it. Many use money to pay for a car - that's what I did.
You didn't read what he said, did you? He said vary by job, not age. It's just more likely to find a 40 year old male working at a plant and a teenager working at a fast food restaurant than the reverse.
