Connections: The impact of the loss of the summer job

Aug 27, 2020

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
