Teenagers having jobs teaches them responsibility and helps prepare them for adulthood. There are teenagers who need jobs for reasons like parents make them help with phone bills; they have a rough home life and help their parents support the family. Goodrich Quality Theaters have been hiring at 16 for over 20 years. Why start changing now?

As of the 1st January 2020, Bob Goodrich is firing every worker under the age of 17. He claims that adults don't want to be served by teenagers. This is unfair and disrespectful to the teens currently working in the business. What he's doing is age discrimination; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) sadly only refers to workers over the age of 40. It is still discrimination despite the fact that ADEA does not imply to teenagers. 

He should not be able to fire us, due to our age. All of us are good workers and deserve to retain our jobs. Our customer service is enjoyed by most of our patrons, so why does it matter that we are younger? We're fighting this so we can change what is happening. You are helping us to show that we deserve to be here by signing this.
