Cashiers get paid more and get more respect. Yes, our kids may be getting dumber and dumber, but at least we can count on getting the correct change back ... or can we? How would we know?

As a cashier I for sure don't make more than a teacher. I Make $11.50 an hour 20 hours a week because full time doesn't exist. I have to share a 3 bedroom house with 3 other people because I can't afford the $850 a month for a one bedroom in this city. Meanwhile I have friends who teach who own their own homes, cars and have a social life.

Annoying that I can't click on your profile or give a hug/message. Hurumph. I'm in the UK working a skilled job for more than minimum wage and I can barely afford to live in a three bedroom flat with two friends and conjure anything more than a money saving social life.

Cashiers do not get paid more than teachers. A teacher may work 9 months a year, but their salary is for 12 months. You can either choose to not get paid in the summer or to get paid. You will RARELY see a cashier that can make a decent living on minimum wage...that's why most of these jobs are allocated towards teenagers and college students.

Because teachers get treated like shit and get paid shit. So it's hard to get people that want to do that, especially with how stressful it is. Believe me, I work in education. I would not recommend it. The kids can be great, but it's not worth it. Not to mention, they are wanting to do away with public education in general, which isn't surprising since the funding for education has plummeted in recent years.

That's because all of us working as part time cashiers did so as a last resort despite having a diploma/degree, then have to get a second part time job because full time jobs are almost impossible to find. I feel your pain my 3.7 GPA and college degree got me a job working 20 hours a week over 5 days a week in 4 hour shifts minimum wage at a retail store.

what do you expect when everyone and their dogs want a cashier job... there is a much higher demand for teachers than for people who just want to sit behind a till all day. I've done both.... teaching is far more rewarding.

That's because everyone sees being a cashier as the low-effort, easy access job until they can find something better or they need extra money, depending on where you are in your career.

It's because politicians never make cuts to grocery store funding when they are looking for spare cash. A cashier's job is secure and thus, they need only the best of the best at the register.
