Mayor Greg Fischer and Congressman John Yarmuth today announced plans to put Louisville young adults, ages 16 - 21, to work this summer in meaningful jobs paying at or above minimum wage. Two programs, the Youth Opportunity Showcase and KentuckianaWorks: SummerWorks2012, will help youth find summer jobs in a tough teenage job market with unemployment around 25 percent.
"Both programs require support from the Louisville business community to be a success," Fischer said. "In turn, both programs will benefit the Louisville business community by providing energetic and talented young employees who want to work."
