Best Answer

Most of the time, people that are doing the hiring might want someone who is older and not looking for just a summer job. Also other teens that work give a bad name to the good ones. Alot of teens are late for work or they just don't do a good job. That is some of the many reasons why it is so hard for teens to get a good job.
