If young people start working at the age requirement they are able to earn their own money and become more independant. It is important to start working to learn life skills and skills to give them experience in the work force

But will there be any jobs here in Australia? May have to go live in China they're taking all of our jobs. Good luck young generation I feel for you the politicians do not! Or the rich!
