No relief in US unemployment drop for teens

Despite a three-year low in joblessness, US teenagers and minority youth still struggle to find work.

    Unemployment in the US has fallen to a three-year low of eight per cent, but that has meant little improvement for the nation's teenagers.

    Teen joblessness remains in the double digits, with Latino and black youth being the hardest hit.

    In Boston, the job search of 16-year-old Kelvin Harris illustrates the problems that face US teens.

    Al Jazeera's Cath Turner reports from Boston.
