DWD Looks To Help Teens Find Jobs

The Department of Workforce Development wants to help teens find their first job this summer by helping the people around them understand teen labor. Equal Rights Division administrator Jesús Villa says parents and employers need to ensure that teens have a good start to their careers to let them get a feel for what a job can be.

“I think we owe it to them to make sure that their early experiences in work are good experiences and positive experiences and that they have those associations, and they want to work and they want to work in Wisconsin.”

DWD has released a series of short videos that will help teens navigate the job market and common issues that come up. You can find those videos on YouTube by searching for the Department of Workforce Development.
