Well here goes some insights that no ivy league econonist is likely to have a clue about: those crappy jobs are what youngsters are supposed to have as part of their workforce training to prepare them for being useful participants in the big bad world!
amen! I've roofed houses in Georgia when I was younger. So whenever I hear the softbodies that surround me at my current jobs complain " this is too much work! This sucks! ", I tell them to try roofing a 2 story house in the middle of July in Georgia then come back and tell me how bad this air conditioned, 2 breaks and a lunch hour job indoors sucks.

Landscaping is a great career opportunity for those who work for themselves and employ some helpers. In fact, its probably the easiest self made business to get into in Florida. Buy yourself a truck, a trailer, and about $500 worth of used lawn equipment and your good to go! Upgrade as you make money and get more contracts.
I agree, construction is where high schoolers should go after graduation to help them build some charcter. Although if they really wanted to know what it was to be tough, they should start in roofing. Roofing in a Florida summer, you may actually prefer to volunteer to fight on the front lines instead lol!
I guess you should have sat home collecting parents allowance, learning nothing about how the real world actually works.
