Missouri, Illinois join project to help teens into workforce

Missouri and Illinois are among six states chosen to take part in a nationwide program designed to help teens complete high school, then find their way to training that will lead to a good job.

What good jobs for teens?  Obama just added somewhere between 800k and 1.4m DREAMers to the labor market supply with one stroke of a pen.

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education noted that for every 100 students in ninth grade in Missouri, only 21 of them will earn a four-year college degree – a definite financial disadvantage when you consider that even among those under the age of 25 who do have a college degree, as many as half may be unemployed or underemployed.

Again, do I have to spell it out?
