Long before we enter the working world, wage disparity can occur in the form of allowance.
I don’t remember talking to my friends about how much allowance they made, but I am guessing the subject probably came up. As a parent, allowance is definitely something to consider carefully. You don’t want to give your child too much nor too little.
-“This is an emergency! I need to know all of your allowances!”
-“Because you are all still friends, even with different allowances! I have to know how you do it.”
-“Do we get different allowances?”
-“I don’t know, do we?”
From the kids’ show Arthur, in the episode More! where Arthur’s little sister, D.W., is angry she earns less allowance than her friend.
