LANSING (WKZO) -- Teenagers looking for work in Michigan face another tough summer in 2013.

The state Department of Technology, Management & Budget is predicting the summer unemployment rate for teens will be 25.5-percent.  The teen jobless rate has fallen steadily since peaking at 35-percent in 2010, but a decade ago stood at 17.2- percent.

The rate for younger workers is always higher than any other age group due to competition with older, more experienced workers.
