New York State Setting Aside 27 Million Dollars for Young Workers


I remember my first job like it was yesterday. I got my working papers at the age of 14 and spent my summer helping out at my local junior high school doing everything from cleaning out lockers (you wouldn’t believe the stuff kids left behind!) to answering the phones.

I think there’s something to be said for young people who pick up summer jobs. Whether they work to help their family, as was my case or whether they work to earn some spending cash, I have a lot of respect for kids who give up their summer vacation to work.

WHEC reports that Governor Andrew Cuomo announced earlier this week that the state of New York is setting aside 27 million dollars in funds to help young people get a summer job. People between the ages of 14 and 20 who come from low income families will be eligible for the program, which hopes to help young workers develop the job skills they’ll need later in life and to help them earn a paycheck and according to Cuomo’s office, the funds will help more than 18,000 young people.
