Connections: The impact of the loss of the summer job

Summer jobs are not what they used to be. Statistics show that far fewer teenagers are working summer jobs. There's a ripple effect on the economy and future employment prospects, and it's also a change in the culture.

Our guests examine the impact of this change:

  • Rainesford Stauffer, freelance writer, and author of the forthcoming book, "An Ordinary Age"
  • Chloe Maloy, rising junior at World of Inquiry School, and lifeguard for the City of Rochester
  • Ari Fybush, rising senior at Brighton High School
  • Z Marvin, rising senior at Brighton High School and part-time employee at Dunkin' Donuts
