Yes, there are jobs that require no use of algebra at all. And there are many jobs that require quite a lot. Are you going to ask a 12 or 13 year old to decide what kind of job they are going to have? I have very little reason to use, in my work, what I learned in History or Geography but I am not at all annoyed that I had to learn them. The purpose of school is to turn out educated people, not just people who are prepared for a specific job.
(Oddly enough, the "trade schools", which do prepare people for specific jobs, require quite a lot of mathematics. But not history or geography.)
