Lifeguards are paid fair
Don't cut your nose off to spite your face. $9.50 an hour is good pay for a teenager. Several lifeguards need to be on duty at the same time to keep a good watch on the swimmers. If lifeguards get paid more money there would be less on duty. Sorry you had to pay 250. to be certified. We have two lifeguards in our family and we didn’t pay that. I'm sure there are plenty of kids who would love to take your place. Greed can make you lose your job. Not to mention stopping lots of people from enjoying the beaches.
