    As adults are filling jobs normally occupied by teens because they can't find anything else...sucks to be a teen trying to find work in this economy.

    Having been in business and done my best to hire a teen, it was a failure every time. Teens are primarily a class of persons who believe they should be paid to sit around and text their friends. I ended up with a very reliable 50 year old woman after trying to give a dozen or more teens a chance. Including a few that were very memorable in creativity to avoid work.

    To be fair, when Obama promised "Change" he never said it would be for the better

    There is something to be said about this.
    I can't find any reliable teenagers either. I use to use my son and daughter and a few of their friends. I have went through several and no go. I literally gave up. I am outsourcing what they use to do and paying more to have it done.
