Hey, teens. What's in your wallet?

When the average price for a gallon of gas is $5.03 in Boise, Idaho, it's safe to assume not much. Right? Lately almost everyone is feeling the sting of hard economic times, and teens are no exception.


With concerts to see, the squad to chill with, and real-world expenses like car insurance or the first year of BSU to pay for, today's under 20 crowd is strapped for cash. But post-Covid-19 times have created an inroad for teens in the Idaho job market. Back in March, the Idaho Department of Labor reported a historically low unemployment rate of 2.7%. While that's certainly something to celebrate, the flip side is that Gem State employers are hustling to fill open positions and coming up empty.


"There are definitely not enough workers right now for the growth rate that we have going on in Idaho."

—Jan Roeser, economist for Idaho Department of Labor
