Think back to your first job. At the time you may have been just been doing it for the money; maybe you wanted to buy your first car or a new stereo or save money for college. But the lessons you learned and the experience you gained in that first job likely outweighed whatever money you made. Entry level jobs are a critical stepping stone in a career path. You learn a little about what you like to do, what you don’t like to do and you learn a lot about responsibility. It’s too bad that those that claim to be advocates for workers at the lower end of the pay scale are actually cutting off access to these important jobs.
