Dallas is often in the top 3 mega cities with a strong technology hub and is often dubbed the Silicon Prairie. Workers in information technology (IT) earn way more than most other industries. Young minority students can especially benefit by getting involved early so that by the time they are of working age (16), they can do more than just the regular minimum wage jobs, and might even become teenage entrepreneurs.
