Summer jobs vanish for US teens

24% of US teens have a job this summer.
Lowest rate in sixty years.
In 2001 it was 42%

Sure it's the economy,
but what is it that people still don't get about raising the price of entry level jobs?
Teens hanging out aren't learning skills and a work ethic.

 "Congress has .. contributed by passing one of the most ill-timed minimum wage increases in history"   WSJ              (Idea from Instapundit)
Shouldn't that have been, "Better Jobs Higher Wages"?
