Kids Talk About Jobs

Nick News with Linda Elleberbee presents "Workin' It" - premiering Sunday Aug 8 at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific

When Corinne tells people about her job, she can tell people she has
“the scoop,” as journalists like to say – a scoop about poop.

“My job is to scoop up dog poop,” she says.

Corinne doesn’t do it because she likes dog poop.

“I think it’s disgusting,” she confided.

She does it because it’s her job.

“It’s a family-owned business,” she says.

A lot of kids work – some just during the summer, and some all year long.  Some do it because they want to. Some do it because they have to.

And you might be surprised at the kind of work they do.

Sunday, August 8th, “Nick News with Linda Ellerbee” will focus on career-minded kids and the jobs that they do.

The show is called “Workin’ It.”

You’ll meet Corinne and nine other kids, all of whom have jobs.

Adam is an actor – on Broadway.

“It’s really like a dream come true for me,” he says.

Hannah is a stadium announcer.

“It feels great having the whole stadium hear me,” she told us.

Cameron is an “app” – or computer application – designer.

“The name of my “app” is “ISketch,” he said.

And Alexa – her job occasionally involves a little poop, too. She’s a babysitter. And sometimes, that means changing diapers.

“Sometimes, they are kind of gross,” she admits.

Why do all these kids work? How much money do they make? And what sort of satisfaction do they get?

You’ll find out the answers to those questions and a lot more when you tune into Nickelodeon on Sunday, August 8th at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific, for the latest edition of “Nick News with Linda Ellerbee.”

As Adam says, “It’s just really exciting.”
