As you learned on the show today, there has been a decline in summer job opportunities for teens in recent years. In 1978, 60 percent of teenagers in America had summer jobs. Last summer, that percentage dropped down to just 33. That got us curious — are teens actively looking to take on summer jobs?
We want to hear from you — are you planning on getting a summer job this year? Vote and tell us in the comments section below what job you are planning to take. And if you are not planning to work this summer, share with us what you will be doing instead. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show.
I think getting a summer job would be a good idea but, I am a little too young for a job right now, and I am usually really busy doing other stuff during the summer.
