Chicago Summer Job Outlook

Youth in Chicago will be in for a long summer; without many summer jobs available, plans to see Shrek 4 and Iron Man 2 may have to be replaced with picnics in the park. (Picnics are fun, folks, and with Terrance Howard out of the picture, I’m not so keen about the next Iron Man flick anyway.)

Total numbers of potential summer jobs are drastically down in Chicago this season—only 14,300 will be available. This is down 33% from the number of jobs available in the same season during 2009.
