The End of the Summer Job?
The New York Times - 06/14/2012
Summer jobs for teenagers are increasingly hard to find. Only 3 out of every 10 teenagers held a full- or part-time job in July of 2011. In 1989, that rate was nearly twice as high: nearly 6 of every 10 teenagers from 16 to 19 years old held jobs, and even in July of 2005, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that more than half of 16- to 19-year-olds were employed.
