It is one of a series of columns she is writing. Many of these teenagers are not there for a day off or a night out like yourself.
Instead they are working. Why do teenagers work? What do teenagers do with money? Teenagers are a major market for many businesses and corporations, as they spend significant amounts of money, and can work and begin legally making money in New York State at age Local businesses as well as international companies such as Nike all benefit from the money that teenagers spend on their products.
What is the goal for many teenagers when they give their money to a business in exchange for a product or a service? Their goal is to receive that product or service. But what if teenagers changed their method of consumerism in order to expand that goal?
What if the new goal was to receive the product while supporting a cause or ideology that they believed in? Teenagers have the ability to use their discretionary spending to influence corporations. An example of these companies: Apple, historically donating to Democrats running for office.
Teenagers who are spending their money can have a significant impact and allow their political opinions to be heard in two ways: Boycotting would be not buying a product because of a decision that the company that manufactures the product is making. However, when people boycott a product, they are not only denying a company their money, they are also denying themselves of that product.
Thus, the option of buycotting. When someone buycotts, they are buying a product from a company because they believe in the company's message and product, and it is more of a mutually beneficial arrangement. Boycotting is a form of negative reinforcement, while buycotting is a form of positive reinforcement.
Teenagers have the ability to do both, and therefore allow their voices to be heard. Although one teenager doing this may not have a major impact, what if all teenagers practiced conscientious consumerism?
Teenagers ages spend an average of about 9 hours a day on entertainment media use, according to a study that Common Sense Media published.
Over an hour of that time is spent using social media 3. What if instead, they were researching what political affiliations Netflix had before they paid their monthly bill, or investigating what country the clothes that they were wearing were made in?
What if instead of sharing memes or selfies, they shared information and worked together using hashtags such as BoycottNRA? A large difference could be made, especially considering that according to a U.
Census, there are 17 million teenagers ages in this country. Youth do have the power to make a difference, and if made aware of their buying power, they could have the ability to have major political sway, despite not even being old enough to vote.Transforming media into collaborative spaces with video, voice, and text commenting.
