Some of the students will attend college while others will do something else.
Despite the government's weak May jobs report -- openings for teens between 16 and 19 increased by 67-thousand seasonal positions.
That's the biggest May increase since 1999. While that doesn't solve the full-time job problem -- Kathy Bray of Denham Resources in Fresno says teens don't necessarily need to attend a four year school to earn a good living.
"You ask some of the college graduates right now who have a more general degree what they're getting paid," Bray said. "You know it's not a pretty picture right now for them."
Bray runs a hiring agency -- both temporary and permanent. She says machinists and HVAC refrigeration technicians are in high demand.
Bray says students should get degrees in fields you're passionate about.
