    Summer jobs used to be all the rage back in the day but that requires more than two brain cells to figure out. I doubt the black 'youths' in Philadelphia qualify!
    This is the fault of the minimum wage. Nobody's going to hire a "youth" at $15/hr to sweep floors or wash dishes.

    Obviously, all this wouldn't have happened if a licensed dj had been there, it is obvious that that the unauthorized music made the youfs go crazy.

    Not a "disc jockey license," but more likely a business license. Can't "engage in commerce" without paying the monetary tribute to your local Soviet. Likely the shitty code requires a business license of such "public performances."

    That's a canard (nothing personal, just something the "conservatives" spew mindlessly).

    There are plenty of openings nationwide for $15/hour. The trouble is, the modern "youth," not only Black, but White, as well, don't want to:

    1) show up on time;
    2) look smart;
    3) be diligent;
    4) actually work.


    Every business in the area has a chronic problem filling their positions because people don't bother showing up for the interview, or, if hired, bother coming to work on time. If the business tests for marijuana, oh, boy, you might as well shut down the shop, since you'll find one qualified worker for every five positions!

    Then, if they make it that far, they are disagreeable, nasty, generally lazy, think pajamas are "work attire," and on and on. My daughter is a shift manager at a busy local restaurant, and I hear it every day. I also get intel feeds from the lumber mills. And this area is still mostly White!
