News Special: Summer Jobs for Youth [Audio]

WFPL held an hour-long news special today about the tight employment market and tough prospects for young job-seekers, both locally and nationally.  In the post-recession economy, more older workers are taking the low-wage jobs that used to be the staples of teen employment. People are also retiring later, which may mean a decrease in open entry-level positions.  Gabe Bullard hosted, along with guests Lorena Lasky of Kentuckiana Works, and Andrew Sum, professor of economics at Northeastern University in Boston. Listen in below.
