With the economy in such poor condition and people getting laid off everyday, the outlook for teen jobs this summer doesn’t look very good. This comes at a time when more teens than ever will probably be looking for jobs as they need money for themselves and for their families.reasons why summer is the best time to look for a job
Teenagers may need jobs to make some much needed money but they also need jobs to keep them busy and away from trouble. Teens with jobs not only learn responsibility but they also have things to do and keep them busy which means less time hanging out and potentially getting into trouble. If many teens this summer are unable to get jobs, what will that mean for our streets and neighborhoods? Will some of these teens turn to crime?
Of all the times to be looking for jobs, this summer might be the worst time since the great depression or at least the Carter years. With so many adults out of work and needing money, they are often willing to take jobs that are minimum wage jobs that might have ordinarily gone to teenagers. This will leave even less jobs available for kids and will be demoralizing for them as well.
Teens love the Internet and in this case maybe they can use it for two purposes. The first is to pick up some extra spending money by doing such things as filling out surveys online. This and a few other things are by no means real jobs and can only be used to make some money on the side. Nevertheless, a little money coming in is better than none at all.
