The labor market for the teens of the nation weakened considerably during the first six months of this year despite continued employment growth for older working age adults. The seasonally adjusted teen employment rate during the January-June period of 2007 was nearly two full percentage points below its value during the same six month period in 2006. Based on the weakening job prospects for teens, earlier this year, the Center for Labor Market Studies of Northeastern University projected that the summer job market (June-August) for the teens of the nation would likely be tied for the post-World War II historical low that was reached in the summer of 2004.
