Young people go to work in the summer

Summer is here and for many high school students, that means it is time to try to get a first job.

Some are getting lucky and finding good jobs while others are struggling to find that first opportunity.

"I am working at a fast food restaurant but I am hoping to get some work at a summer camp. My goal is to become a teacher and I think I could get some valuable experience working with kids," said Erin Schrader, a high school student.

"I am hoping for more hours at the grocery store where I work," said Brian Lewis, a high school student.

"I am looking for a job, any job. I will work fast food, bus tables, whatever I need to do to get a foot in the door," said Brandy Walsh, a high school student.
