  •  high school's out (none)
    It's really sad. If there is a small "spike" in June, it is only because of all of the low income families sending their newly graduated high school sons and daughters off to the ONLY PLACE HIRING!. In  Northern Kentucky, these families can't afford to keep an 18 year old at home and the kids can't find work because of the "terrific" Bush economy. These are good kids, but they are so ashamed of not being able to pull their weight, they sign up with the military to relieve their families of supporting them. It breaks my heart.
