Although

Firstly

when they have not reached 18 yet, teenagers are not fully aware of the society around them, making them prone to deception and abuse by their older employees. For examples, they can be forced to

longer hours with lower salary if they do not know much about working regulations.
Besides
, they have not been equipped with appropriate knowledge and employable skills in the related fields, which made them less potential from the perspective of the employers. Those employees can

Furthermore
, people have not fully developed their physical status yet.
