When his father lost his job last year, Togi, then 16, wasted little time before looking for work to support his family, even though he knew it could put him at risk of contracting Covid-19. He ended up working at a fast food restaurant in a suburb of Washington, juggling the job with attending school held online as the world's largest Covid-19 outbreak tore through the United States. "It's exhausting," Togi said, describing long days spent between school and work, leaving little time for the teenager, who was born in Mongolia, to socialize. The twin health and economic crises caused

IIRC, most of us had jobs in the last couple years of high school. I washed boats, cleaned the offices and restrooms for a boat dealer. I’d get on my bike to go home and stop at Carl’s Jr. where a classmate of mine worked. My kids had various gigs while in high school, McDonalds, Starbucks, a frozen yogurt place, etc. It’s not child abuse.

I began delivering newspapers and collecting the monthly subscription price door-to-dor in the 6th grade. I felt fortunate that my parents didn’t own a farm.

Sounds like a good thing. No time to socialize? Oh you mean take selfies and pass on nasty comments about people who are supposedly friends? That socialization which has driven up the suicide rate among teens? That one?

I'm reminded of that wonderful old recurring skit from "In Living Color" called "Hey, Mon!" featuring the Hedley's, the hardest working West Indian family who each had at least five jobs and that was just on the boat coming over! All of that is to say, I'm sorry for your family's situation, but welcome to the world. I had friends who worked their way through college and I never heard them complain like kids do today.

So what odd jobs did he have to take? Fast food is not an odd job. Community organizer is an odd job, selling drugs is an odd job. Some communities could learn a lot from this young man who will probably be very successful and live the American Dream.

Oh, please. I began to work parttime - weekends, school holidays and vacations - from the time I was 14 (with a work permit signed by my parents). It was far more educational than some school courses. Togi, life is exhausting. That’s a lesson, too. Maybe he’d be happier back in Mongolia…?

Well if they're poor students, then maybe they should learn how to study. I wasn't the best student in college, and I had a job as well, but I learned how to study, take notes, and got better every year. Having a job while in school isn't the worst thing. The student learns some responsibility and about time management. Good life lessons. Or maybe the piece was about poor as in no money. Well, that was me too, but everything worked out.

Oh the humanity. Who didn't work odd jobs? Once I took a job for a lady to "rake" her yard which turned out to be more about picking up her dog's winter waste. I kept taking odd jobs as a young degreed engineer. I went to grad school and into better paying jobs before I stopped taking odd jobs. Now that I'm of retirement age I will soon five years out or so need to go back to taking odd jobs.

You think it is bad now with young American workers trying to find jobs, just wait until the untold numbers of illegal aliens that Biden is now allowing into the USA and telling them that they are exempt from being arrested by federal immigration authorities and be deported from the USA spread out across the USA. As those illegal aliens, long known to US employers to be cheap foreign labor who have always depressed the wages of US workers similarly employed, thus lowering the wages those employers would have to pay them, are put at the front of US employer’s hiring lines for any US jobs that employers can hire them into!

Cry me a river. I started babysitting and odd jobs. When 16, got a job as a dishwasher at a restaurant. That was the start of different jobs at the restaurant and other jobs (all while going to school). In college I had 3 jobs. If you set priorities, you can still go to school, have a job, and still have time to socialize. Get your friends to get jobs where you work if you really want to see them. That's what I did. We all worked together every weekend and had a great time. Guess what? We all lived!

Most of my self-confidence and knowledge that I can make it in this world was nourished by "odd jobs" (some really crappy) this "poor US student" from Kentucky did as a kid and young adult. Besides earning the money that afforded me decent clothing and gas money and financed the gap between scholarships and college costs, I credit those jobs with giving me some of my fondest memories of some good people and great experiences. It builds a future man's character to be able to identify with cleaning toilets, mowing grass, waiting tables, scrubbing pizza pans, mopping floors, stocking shelves, and getting up at 4am every morning to roll, rubber band, and deliver 100+ newspapers on time and ON-the-porch-young-man !! A society that cheats a young man like Togi out of the expectation that he should work when he's young are robbing all the Togis of something very important that will redound to their detriment when they're older and weaken the very fabric of that society. Done did, I guess.

Most of us over a certain age worked tough jobs when young. Mine was two summers at a feed mill two at a chicken hatchery while still a teen in HS. You learn a lot by working along with all different sorts and you can get some good life lessons like getting fired from a construction job one summer when a co-worker screwed up and they let us both go. I realize I sound like an old man sitting on his porch griping about today's young people which is a pretty good description of myself. I even have a cane to complete the picture but today's youth really are dumber and lazier than years past. Not all of course but overall there is a serious decline.

A magazine editor explained on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday why he's reconsidering whether to hire Ivy league graduates. "I would just say that 10 years ago I would have seen that as a big positive on their resume and now I see it as a negative that they have to overcome in the interview because obviously there is going to be great kids all over in higher [education]at different schools," said the editor of "First Things" magazine Rusty Reno. Reno said back then, the negative tendencies of Ivy League graduates was that they had a "sense of entitlement" and "arrogance."

The Biden administration knew the key to a successful Covid vaccination campaign would be reaching the most vulnerable populations. But more than five months in, even a blueprint that’s worked with other ethnic and racial groups isn’t doing enough to win over Black Americans. Less than a quarter of Black Americans had received their first Covid-19 shot as of June 7 based on available federal data, amid a weekslong stagnation that has defied the government’s ramped-up effort to accelerate vaccinations and reach the nation’s most vulnerable communities. The slowdown has put Black Americans behind the pace set over the past
