The summer work force is out. University students are already at it, with high school students right behind. Summer jobs are usually awful and poorly paid, drawing as they do on an unskilled workforce with nothing to lose. But sometimes, they can give you the best summer memories you will ever have. Like being a counselor at the camp you went to as a camper, or working as the Ex and trying out life as a carny. Being a lifeguard can be pretty cool. I know of one kid who has the Best. Summer. Job. Ever. He got it last year through the City of Toronto, and will be back again this summer. He gets to fire the cannons at Old Fort York (mic drop).
