My husband and I were talking the other day about the increasing number of small landscape companies that we see working in and around our neighborhood. We wondered about the days when teenagers cut grass, raked leaves and shovelled snow.
Today's teens have moved away from this kind of labor.
They are now working alongside older employees in retail, sales and office jobs.
The next time you take a trip to the mall, look at who is not only working in, but managing shops in the food court. Pay close attention also to who is racking up the sales in electronics shops and every telecommunication booth you pass.
As teenagers increase their contribution in the retail sector, we have to find other ways to get our grass cut, leaves raked and snow shovelled.
