“Every summer, employers look for young workers to replace people who are on vacation and to staff the retail and resort areas where people go for their vacations,” said Carl VanHorn, Director of the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers.    “Young workers gain experience and employers get workers that don’t cost them very much money.” 

This year’s wages are expected to hold steady with last year’s at an average of $10.90 an hour.  Most hiring managers say a teen’s greatest competition for a job will come from other high school and college students.   A new survey from Snagajob finds that three in 10 of the 1,000 hiring managers polled said it will be easy for teens to find a summer job this year.  That’s up from 2010 and 2011.
