Is being a garbage man a good choice for a first job?

Category: Other


I'm a 16 year old junior from Honolulu and I heard garbage men get paid well and it's funny because back in Kindergarten, I wanted to be a garbage man haha.


It's an excellent first job!

It pays well and is often at night so you could keep going if you choose to study.

In many ways I wish that I became a garbage man instead of going to university.


Yes, they just have a bad reputation because they work with garbage. It's not like getting paid minimum wage at McDonalds.

Any job is good for a first job, but I would suggest keeping that job for life.
