Quotes

"It's not that these teens are lazy, in fact quite the opposite," says CEO John Challenger, pointing to reams of data showing that kids are "spending a lot more time and effort on extracurricular activities, summer school, sports, volunteering, and other activities aimed at gaining an edge in college admissions. there's little room left in their schedules for traditional part-time or summer jobs." He adds that many kids are earning "walking around money" from other sources, like doing odd jobs around their neighborhoods or from their parents
"with the sign-up period ending on march 31, call centers around the country have been purging their payrolls of these temporary employees" Challenger said
"layoffs continue to decline in a recovery that is approaching its five-year anniversary" said Chief Executive John Challenger in a statement
