Understanding Jobs

A job is work that has to be done. When you do the work, you get paid. You can get other things too, like vacation time, sick days, health insurance, and retirement benefits. When you do a job you are performing a specific duty, role, or function. An example might be a cashier – ringing up the sale, putting the merchandise in a bag, asking customer for payment, taking their payment, and giving them change. Pretty specific, right?
