The Youngs Have No Jobs
It’s the first Friday of the month, which means the Bureau of Labor Statistics has released new jobs numbers! The economy added 120,000 jobs in March, which was fewer than people were expecting. But the employment rate still dipped slightly to 8.2 percent. Teenagers have it the worst right now. When I was a teenager in the ’90s, there were jobs galore! Amusement parks, malls, and fast food joints were all scrambling to scoop us up and pay minimum wage. I got my first job when I was 16 at the Baby Gap, but that story deserves its own post.
