This article by MarketWatch clearly displays the struggles for summer employment for today’s students.  Interestingly, this decline is in tandem with the overall productive gains from American workers (1979).  There seems to be a correlation between the increase in productive gains by workers and the reduction of overall jobs in the marketplace.  A cannibalization of jobs has occurred due to the rise of technology and productive gains.   This study is provides another set of data to support this theory.  Don’t blame the students for this effect since they are just a small part of the broken process of job creation.
