Right now, there are about 1.3 million unemployed 16- to 19-year olds who are looking for work. But what does that mean? John Challenger is CEO of Challenger, Gray and Christmas, a national job placement firm, and they do an annual “teen summer employment outlook” each year to better understand the current state of teen unemployment. In this interview, youth producer Sterling Anderson sits down with teacher Michael McHugh and Youth Radio Project director Kelly Schoenfelder and speaks with Challenger over the phone about teens and unemployment.
