.... his own. Jim could go to the movies, buy a new pair of shoes, or do
whatever he wants to do with it. Jim worked hard for his money and after
all, it is his money. Another alternative to spending this hard earned
money is to save it in a bank and use it for college.
This is all fine and dandy but what about school and the homework teachers
send home. If a student does have a part time job when will he get this
work done. Part time jobs can take away the precious time that students

.... out that it was self-defeating. Leisure is even
considered an "evil temptation" (Bedford and Colbourne 235-238). Marge Piercy,
a modern day poet, essayist, and novelist, attempts to explain why work is
desirable on contemporary terms in her poem "To Be of Use." To Piercy, hard

society today the demand for "unskilled" workers is low and the supply is high,
therefore there is a surplus of unskilled workers in the job market. The effect
of a surplus drives down an individuals reservation wage, as they are willing to

it increases the supply of workers.
Minimum wage increases the cost of doing business, and unfortunately in today's

.... Taking money out before the age of 59 1/2.
3. Penalties for leaving money in too long.
Many people often live their lives without considering how they plan to
retire. People do not realize that the idea of living solely on the benefits of
social security is not realistic. In order to secure a comfortable future,
people must have some type of additional income. Sacrificing a small amount of
money into an IRA at a relatively early age could make a considerable difference
