One part of summer is the refreshing air and the parties, but it’s not all fun and games for some people. For some, such as juniors Johnny Kaltenbach and Jackson Thomas, summer means work. Both Kaltenbach and Thomas are employed at Giant Eagle. Boredom, experience and money are main motivators for applying to jobs. For Thomas, it was about money. “I’m broke and they offer more than minimum wage,” Thomas stated.
