Before the job market took a turn for the worse, it used to be that teenagers found summer jobs with relative ease. Even high school drop outs didn't have to spend too long looking for employment. Today, it doesn't appear to be quite as easy.
According to statistics from the Employment Policy Institute, nearly 35% of California and Georgia teens looking for work have been unsuccessful in landing jobs. Teen unemployment is even higher in the District of Columbia, at 49%. Other states with high unemployment rates for teenagers include Nevada (34.3%), Washington (33.2%), North Carolina (32.1%) and Idaho (31.8%).
In June, the national average rose from 24.2% to 24.5%.
