... Despite the progress we made in the 1990s, this nation's teens
have been bumped down the queue by out-of-work older adults and

on hiring this summer, contributing to the worst employment market
since the early 1990s, a new survey said Tuesday.

About two-thirds of employers said they don't expect to hire any
additional workers and 9 percent plan to eliminate jobs during the
July-to-September quarter, according to the survey by Manpower Inc."
