Students Should have a Part-time Job -- Debate 2

Arguments Against:

  1. It's not good for students to do part-time jobs because they will become money-oriented.
  2. Many students who have part-time jobs have shown a decline in their studies.
  3. Part-time jobs do not help develop a sense of thriftiness among young people.
    Because many students spend the money on high-priced items, luxuries that their parents can hardly afford.
  4. Part-time jobs often distract the students' attention away from their studies, and some students even play truant.
  5. The main task of students is to study hard and learn what is needed for the development of our nation.
    Social experience can be gained later after they finish their studies.
  6. Students are in their formative years.
    Part-time jobs may expose them to social ills at an age when they cannot differentiate the good from the bad.
  7. Some students become juvenile delinquents because they come under the influence of bad people through part-time jobs.
  8. Students who have part-time jobs may relieve their parents' economic burdens.
    But their early contact with society adds greatly to the worries of their parents.
  9. Though some after-school work can help students to practice what they learn in classes, many jobs require nothing of the students' knowledge.
  10. Some students have become dropouts because through part-time jobs they've found that the more education you have, the less money you make.
  11. After the chaotic 10-year-long Cultural Revolution, China now has a shortage of 60 million engineers.
    The problem of dropouts only makes the situation worse.
  12. Because of the low cost of part time workers, employers are tempted to employ only part time and not employ full time workers.
  13. Part time workers are not given vacations, sick pay, and health care.
  14. Most part time jobs are very menial and do not lead to meaningful full time jobs.
