Nevada Teens facing grim employment posibilities

Unemployment among teenagers is usually above the rate for the rest of the population.  But, the last few years teens have been shoved out of jobs that were once dominated by young people.  Why?  Part of it is the economy; part of it is technology; and some say part of it lands on teens not having enough motivation these days.  Do you have a teen struggling to find work?  Share your story and experience.
