More Teens Finding Summer Jobs in 2012
At least one age group is faring better in the weak job market: teenagers. Government data shows teen employment for the summer is up sharply.
That's more than double the number of teens hired last May.
Analysts say it's the strongest start of the teen summer hiring season since 2006.
18-year-old Hannah Bell found work at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Prattville.
The teen employment situation is a win-win for teens and employers.
"A lot of times we are looking for people who are willing to work for only three or four months as opposed to something long term.They're not looking for full time and insurance and things like that," said Mike Beverly, Director of Golf.
