Summer break means summer work

It’s officially summer break for students throughout the Fox Cities, and according to a national survey, area youth are feeling optimistic about securing a job for the summer months.

According to WHBY News, “… the tourism and retail industries are the best bets for teens to target. The national unemployment rate for 16 to 19 year olds is over 17 percent.”

The Fox Cities Chamber offices have been busy this morning with area teens coming in for work permits. Visit the chamber website for more information.

Who needs a work permit?
Every employer who hires a youth between the ages of 12 and 18 or who permits the minor to work at a gainful occupation must insure that the youth has a valid permit. A new permit is required until the minor reaches the age of 18 for every new job.

Where are permits obtained?
