Facilities Cut Costs Summer Jobs

Category : Job Search

Here in Philadelphia (like every where else) we’re faced with a tough economy and the city is forced to make some tough budget cuts.  One of the proposals is to close the swimming pools this summer.  I’m not going to argue that one facility is more important to the other, but Kia Gregory makes the often over looked point in today’s Inquirer that not only do pools give kids something to do and somewhere to go over the summer, but they keep plenty of kids employed.

Lifeguarding is a great summer job and Myfirstpaycheck.com has many listings, but when cities close pools they are putting jobs and teens  in jeopardy.

Since the city cannot afford to keep everything open on it’s own how Philly kids stay cool this summer depends on us. Check out this great fundraising drive, and please donate if you can.
