  • Teens rally in financial district for more jobs

    The Boston Globe - 07/20/2013

    Teen employment has declined over the years, and the percentage of Massachusetts teens who are working has plunged, according to the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University. Just over a decade ago, more than 50 percent of Massachusetts teens were working: Last year, only 27 percent had jobs. The demonstration targeted Putnam because the mutual fund company declined to create a summer jobs program in partnership with the Youth Jobs Coalition, organizers said. In a statement, Jon Goldstein, a spokesman for Putnam, said, “While Putnam has a deep-rooted commitment to youth in the Greater Boston area, including through its long-standing charitable efforts, at this time, the firm does not have meaningful opportunities for part-time summer work.”
