Report: Teen Employment Relatively High In Pa.
"Employers don't like hiring kids," Harrington said.
The study found that nearly 6.5 million U.S. teens and young adults are "disconnected" â¿¿ neither in school nor in the workforce â¿¿ and that minority youths are more likely to fall into that category.
Sara Goulet, a spokeswoman for Pennsylvania's Department of Labor & Industry, noted the state recently launched pacareercoach.org, which allows young people to explore data on average wages, career projections, training opportunities and job openings for various occupations statewide.
Jobseekers of all ages can also obtain services on employment, careers and training at dozens of CareerLink locations across Pennsylvania, Goulet said.___ Follow Kathy Matheson at www.twitter.com/kmatheson
