Teens Face Worst Job Market in Over 40 Years
It's no surprise finding a job is tough is this economy.. but for a group of people about to enter the workforce, it's even tougher.
Teens are facing the worst job market in 41 years, creating a big problem for those needing a job once school is out for the summer.
Teenage unemployment is 26 percent... which is three times higher than the national overall unemployment average.
Older people with more experience are taking what jobs are available, even temporary or seasonal jobs that were once filled by teens, simply because they can't find other work.
Also, economics experts say the jobs that teens usually have, like at restaurants, are taking a hit in this economy, which affects teen employees.
