Job Market Improving For Teens

BY Anthony Silva, WBZ NewsRadio 1030 New England Business Editor

BOSTON (CBS) – A survey by the job placement company Challenger, Gray and Christmas finds the summer job market for teens is starting to improve.

John Challenger tells WBZ that more than a million jobs for teens will be available and fewer of them will have to compete with older workers for positions.

But Challenger says many 16-19-year-olds are not looking for work. He says many of those teens are taking volunteer positions or going back to school.
