Does Your Kid Have a Summer Job?

U.S. Unemployment Rate Drops To 4.3 Percent, Lowest Level In 16 Years


Did you have a summer job? Me too and they stunk! Not the jobs themselves, just working during summer vacation. 

I did a variety of summer jobs in my formative years- 


*Grocery store cashier

*Host/bussing tables

*Server at a 24-hour restaurant. 

For most American teens, the "summer job" is a thing of the past....

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which keeps track of what’s going on in the working world, says fewer teenagers are working summer jobs these days.

Forty years ago, nearly 60% of U.S. teenagers were working -- or at least looking for work -- during the peak summer months. Last year, just 35% were. (Time)
