Remember When Teenagers Used To Work Over Summer Vacations?

But this year, the job market for teens will become more congested and competitive. EconomPic points out that this could be the worst summer for jobs for teenagers since the Great Depression: "...while the unemployment rate among 16-17 year olds is 29.1% (from a 1980's peak of 27.1%), that rate is missing the fact that high school age kids quite simply are no longer bothering to look for jobs, thus are not counted in the unemployment rate."
