CA Teens Face 33% Unemployment Rate This Summer

The Employment Policies Institute reports that 1 in 4 teens will be unemployed this summer.

Things could be especially rough here in California, which expects a 33.1% unemployment rate among teens this summer.

That ranks #2 in the nation.

And Sunnyside senior Jacob Bowles is feeling the pressure…

He’s applied at 20 businesses so far…

“Home Depot, Lowes, Taco Bell, Winco…”

Whatever happens, Jacob will likely join the Army…

But he needs to make a few bucks until then…

School counselors say the keys to landing a summertime gig may be persistence, and a positive attitude…

And Jacob’s keeping his head up…

“I don’t look at the bad. I look at the possibilities that are good.”
