9.1% US Unemployment … How About the Teen 24% Unemployment Rate?

 

So you thought the 9.1% US employment was bad, how about the 24% teen unemployment? If Barack Obama thinks that the increase of 9.1% was just a blip in the road, what would Obama call 24%? Oh and by the way Mr. President, its not a blip, they are out of work Americans. Why wouldn’t teens job search be in dire straights, adults now have to work the jobs that teens once held in order to put food on the table. The economic, job policies of Barack Obama have been a complete failure.

Small businesses are often responsible for filling the summer job needs of America’s teenagers. CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker reports that many 16- to 19-year-olds are finding the going rough when it comes to finding work once school is out.

The Labor Department says the unemployment rate for those aged 16 to 19 last month was more than 24 percent. Compare that to May of 2000, when the rate was less than 13 percent.

Jobs have been the issues for years, its too bad that Barack Obama did not make it a priority.
