Alonzo Soliz said that he is observing something new about the recent job applications he has been receiving for his two upcoming smoothie cafes in Texas. This observation was that most of those applications are from teenagers.
2021 has been reported the best year for teen workers since 1953, which is when Dwight Eisenhower was confirmed as president and his first Corvette car left off the Chevrolet factory floor. The 2021 surge in Teens seeking jobs has given up a bright spot for employers in various sectors such as restaurants and retail, which have been struggling to find workers and regain the workforce they laid off in the height of the pandemic.
This seems like every application coming in lately is from Teens who have never had such a job before.Soliz further said that he hopes to hire a few older workers like those in their 20s and even 30s to fill up more manager roles. Still, he is not receiving as many applications from this age group as he expected or as he did before the pandemic.
