The economy is moving toward recovery, but summer job prospects for the state’s youngest workers are dismal.
The number of teens with jobs in Massachusetts fell 28 percent between 1999 and 2012.
This summer, only one in four teens between the ages of 16 and 19 is projected to find a job, according to a report by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University.
