Utah Teen Struggles to Find Summer Job

Jul 30, 2013

While Utah and the country may be climbing out of a recession, many young people are not feeling the recovery.  A recent analysis by the Center for American Progress found that more than 10 million youth are unable to find full-time work. 17-year-old Fiona Boomer of Ogden wrote to us at KUER about her difficulty finding summer employment, and we asked her to keep a journal in her quest to find a job.  This is Fiona’s story.
