As it turns out, there's a deeper answer here:

There are still a statistically significant number of families, even in 2022, 
where the financial contribution of a high-school senior to the budget is 
important, and that necessity is perceived to be both safer, and more likely
to be worth the investment for employers, if they can work later.

This also, as I understood it, why high-school is always the first grade
level which starts, and ends, the school day (often 7a-2p or so).

No, I don't have a citation handy; news pieces I read on it some years ago.
