Do You Think It Is More Advantageous To Work A Traditional 9 To 5 Or Be Self-Employed?

Mom Works To Rally Community After Daughter’s Best Friend Was Shot
Young adults in Seattle talk about whether or not they think it is more advantageous to work a traditional 9 to 5 or be self-employed.

Lloyd V. Dees

I think it’s more to the advantage of young people to be self-employed at a small business or startup. Relying on your employer to not fire you, given how fast the job market changes is dangerous. Not all small businesses work out, but there is great power in being your own boss and creating your own revenue streams. You can choose where you work when you work and how you work. Plus, you get to work on something you are passionate about every day.

If you could really put in the time, the effort, and good at something then self-employment is a better option than being employed for example reselling clothes and shoes you’re on your own schedule. You can earn a higher amount of money and you’re in control of how much work you put in a day.


Self-employment is freedom in this capitalist system. Don’t hate on a good and stable job, but if you can make money doing what you love, first and on your time and schedule, that’s freedom, that’s winning. 

DaShawn Horne

I would probably work for myself because I have a short-term memory and I don’t think no one would hire me. But I also would be willing to work for someone if they would be willing to pay accordingly.
