I'm mean seriously get a job to support your family or get a job to pay for a cellphone and video games... I just saw a story on this on the news tonight and it totally pissed me off. Some companies are actually favoring the young ones just out for a few months work that have no real responsibilities while my husband sits at home jobless and can't support his family. Um.. HELLOOOO?!?!?!
Sorry... how do you feel about this? Do you think it's right in the present state of the economy and with such a high unemployment rate right now?

Maybe they are thinking: The kid will probably stay longer then the other person which is probably over qualified and will leave for a "better" job.

I worked since I was 14 so I see both sides. If a teen is ambitious enough to get out there and work they should not be faulted. If it is summer then the person can go interview in the late summer or fall.
Also an article may put it is for cell phones or wants but what if he is saving for college so that he doesn't end up where millions of autoworkers are ending up.

It's all about the damn money. They hire them so they can get away with paying cheaper. They know a more experienced man with some wisdom will know better.
My husband has been laid off work for 4 months now and guess who is still working? ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!! They don't even have families to support!
