If you can't get a job at Burger King, try the White House!
The Obama administration just announced they're giving lots of young people some summer plans.
Obama hopes his new youth jobs program will give 250,000 summer jobs and internships for low-income youth in 2012.
In a statement announcing the program POTUS said:
"America's young people face record unemployment, and we need to do everything we can to make sure they've got the opportunity to earn the skills and a work ethic that come with a job. It's important for their future, and for America's."
Our source tells us Nearly 49% of youth ages 16-24 were employed last July, the month when youth employment usually peaks. And only 34.6% of African-American youth and 42.9% of Hispanic youth had a job last summer.
We really hope this works!
16 to 24-year-olds with too much time on their hands can be up to no good!
Hey, maybe that's why teen pregnancy is at a high!
