US Senate rejects extending funding for youth summer jobs program
Mar 15, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Boston Globe
The state is set to run out of millions of dollars in federal stimulus funding that last year helped pay for 7,000 summer jobs for youths in Massachusetts, and the US Senate earlier this week rejected a proposal to extend the funding, outraging community organizers who argue that money for jobs should be a priority.
These jobs not only provided work experience for disadvantaged youth... the money earned contributed to the households of families experiencing extreme financial hardship. teens wages helped pay for gas, electric bills, food & clothing.
