Having a hard time finding seasonal help this summer? You’re not alone. New stats from the Labor Department show that less than half (48.8%) of Americans age 16 to 19 were either working or looking for work in June. That’s a decline from 51.6% in June 2006 and far below the 60.2% teen-labor rate of June 2000. Not all teens are home playing video games. About 38% of those 16 to 19 were enrolled in school in July 2006, over three times the number of two decades ago.
