But good news Birmingham market researchers said. That is quickly changing because of what we're going through here in our country. The job market for teens is very hot. Says Patrick Murphy, who is a professor and the U. A. B. Goodrich Entrepreneurship chair, he says teens in a perfect position to find jobs this year. Uh, he says, we've have the demand is so high Right now It's actually outrunning the supply of entry level positions and professionals. Professor Murphy said the lack of adult candidates for the entry level positions has businesses turning to teenagers. That makes sense. He said. These positions typical, You know, manual labor jobs like car washes and restaurants. But the need for a more advanced skill set, you know, could be coming very, very soon as well. And he says also, if this continues, he expects some of the entrepreneurial ventures.

And things that these younger people have. It's gonna pay off for him. He said that generation Z had these unique tech skills that make them pretty attractive to employees, along with some of the other attributes in there, and Not as cautious when it comes to covid 19, either, and not as selective when it comes to wages and what they expect to be paid.
