A new job application app has been launched out of Dallas, Texas, and it’s called Skratch. North Texas teens can pick up short, well-paying jobs to get money in their pockets.
The app is free, and teens 14-20 can use it to find work that pays between 12-15$ an hour. The jobs must also only take three hours or less to complete.
The founder and CEO of Skratch, Scott Bennett, claims the idea came to him when a friend complained that their son couldn’t find a job that fit his school schedule.
“We beat up millennials about not having experience,” he said. “But before beating the younger generation up, why not give them a chance?”
Skratch has allowed users to get a jump start on careers, pay for their own items, and become more independent earlier.
Currently, the app only works for iPhone users in the North Texas area, but Bennett has said he expects to expand to new mobile platforms in the future.
