They always say “You’ve got it easy, don’t you dare complain. I have to work for 12hours a day.”
Yeah, well first off, you only work for about 7 or 8 hours. The rest is commute and breaks. Secondly, you get to choose for the most part what your job is, focus solely on that one job for that whole time, then leave it at night to go home and rest.
While students also work 7 or 8 hours a day, they don’t get to choose their ‘jobs’, the law decides, and while you only focus on one, they have to focus on 6 (or more) different ‘jobs’ at once. They then have to bring their work home with them for another good 3 hours worth at least in a lot of cases. And students don’t even get the satisfaction of being paid to do six times the amount of work you do.
Not only that, but parents get paid vacation and sick days. Students must show up everyday or face the consequences.
