Studies: Working in high school brings no income benefit

The data is in: Working in high school does not correlate with higher income in adulthood.

The numbers don't lie.

This just further supports my view that high schoolers should not work at all during the school year, preferably, and certainly no more than 20 hours per week. Moreover they should not play high school sports, a huge drain on  students' time and energy, and parents' and schools' attention and resources.
