Young people are suggested to undertake unpaid job to help people in society. Is the drawback of requirement greater than the benefits brought to the society and individuals?
Many people believe that young people should take up unpaid jobs to help society. In my opinion, the benefits of this suggestion far outweigh the drawbacks for two main reasons, which will be elaborated further in this essay.
To begin with, one major drawback of unpaid jobs is that it is biased towards fresh graduates or young adults who do not have financial burden. In this stagnant global economy, many corporations want to maintain competitiveness by cutting down on cost. This means they are becoming more unwilling to hire or pay more. From financial perspectives, unpaid jobs only seem to favour those who still receive financial support from relatives and family, not those from low-income background who need wage to survive on a day-to-day basis. This will ultimately rule out the chance of some poor but capable workers who deserve to earn as much as true employees.
However, unpaid work could offer essential long-term benefits that far outweigh the aforementioned disadvantage. Generally, there are three main benefits that unpaid work could give young generation. Firstly, unpaid job helps the youth understand the value of labour work and appreciate every single dollar they make afterwards. As financial education is not part of formal education syllabus, getting real work experience despite being unpaid can be a pragmatic way to learn about life for young people. Secondly, society always needs people with enthusiasm, time and energy to help contribute and make it a better living place. Teenagers and adolescents offer exactly what local community is looking for with minimal to none financial compensation. Finally, these types of voluntary community work tend to make young people feel happier and have a greater sense of direction in their lives. This in turn would help reduce chances of being engaged in drugs, petty crimes and illegal activities.
In conclusion, whilst there is certain aspect of unpaid work that is unfavourable, the benefits that it could bring to the youth are still reasonably greater.
