Teen Unemployment in Michigan

Some Michigan teens will struggle to find a job this summer. 

According to a recent report from the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget... an unemployment rate of 26.5% is projected amongst teenagers this summer. About 178-thousand teens will be in the workforce from June to August. Although the jobless rate has improved from the previous years, it is still higher than the national average. However, teens have had to compete with adults in some jobs since the economic downturn. The overall unemployment rate for Michigan, in April, is the lowest it's been since 2008, at 7.4%
