**** do you know about kids and working these days? My kid sold cookies and cupcakes at Crissy Field when the Blue Angels flew. He sold cookies at Pt Reyes near the visitors center. He's gone door to door in our neighborhood offering to empty ppls trash for 25 cents a bag/can. He collects mistle toe with me each year, helps me put ribbons on it, and sells door to door. He sells popcorn for the Boy Scouts every year (this last year he was the 2nd highest seller in the troop). And he still asks me "dad, what can I do to make money?". I'm sure if somebody was willing to pay him $5 to walk their dog, he would do it in a heartbeat. The reality is not the most kids won't work, it's that there isn't much for them. Why pay a neighborhood kid to mow your lawn when you got Pedro coming each week for cheap... and to top it off, if Pedro gets hurt, you know some illegal aint gonna try to sue you...
Your idea that kids won't work because they are too sheltered and feel they are too important is BS. My son is not the only one. His friend was over this Saturday to go swimming and asked the same thing... "do you know what I can do to make money?". He's only 14, so I told him, "very little, wait a year and a half, get a work permit, then find a job". The reality is, I watch my son try very hard just to figure out a reasonable way to make money consistently... if you got good suggestions, lemme know... my kid will thank you for it.

your boy is the exception not the rule...I would wager that if a survey were done you would find less than a 1 out of 10 ratio of young people who work or want to in this area, that is "native youth"

No I'm sorry, the majority of young people in this county do not work, nor do they work hard. There are some who do. But they are not common, such as it was when I was young

some suggestions...

Palm tree starts. Go to bel marin keys and other areas where palm trees grow, there are starter shoots all over. Pot them and tend to them. Once they get about 3 ft tall they can be sold for a good price. Plant them in Hiro soil, availible at america soil.

Put up signs in good neighborhoods offering odd job help. Some kid did this awhile ago and for the life of me I can't find his flyer, I would have called by now, but I can't find it. I may have to put an add on craigslist to find someone.

I WILL NOT HIRE ILLEGAL LABOR....but I will pay a high school kid cash ;}

Contact DHS, they are constantly hiring cointel "bloggers" to go on forums such as this one and type disinformation and counter blogging. They pay ok, I'm not sure if they have an age limit, all you have to do is be able to type so,so and read....oh and be a commie statist.
