Young workers make up a disproportionate share of the unemployed. They comprise 13 percent of the labor force, but make up 26 percent of the unemployed (1). What’s more: the millennial generation currently has a savings rate of negative 2%. Compare that with the positive savings rate of about 3% for those age 35 to 44, 6% for those 45 to 54, and 13% for those 55 and older (2).
How can we help our millennial generation find steady jobs that afford the opportunity to save for the future?
At ReadyJob, a startup that offers marketing and research services to employment-related companies, we believe two of the barriers are: appropriate job training (are we properly grooming our teens for employment?) and ample job opportunities.
Below are a list of companies who hire teens which we’re thrilled to share with you today: http://readyjob.org/companies-hire-teens/.
