Why American teenagers are less likely to find a summer job

Unemployment is lower than it’s been in 17 years, but that doesn’t necessarily mean teen workers will have an easier time getting a job this summer.

Last summer, Americans between the ages of 16 and 19 gained nearly 1.3 million jobs during the months of May, June and July, according to a recent analysis of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics by staffing firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. While roughly in line with the average since 2006, that figure was almost 4% lower than the previous year despite the fact that June represented the strongest monthly jobs gain for teens since 2007.
