Jobs and allowance

If your teen gets a job, do you still give him or her an allowance. My teens allowance is not contingent upon his doing chores so that's why I was wondering.

DS16 has a small paper route but we still give him his allowance.

When my kids got jobs we stopped giving them an allowance. The allowance wasn't a lot of money anyway so they easily earned more than we were giving them. I still give dd a little money occasionally or buy her something that she is "supposed" to pay for. She has more disposible income than I do!

Here the allowance was not connected to chores either.
