"The- summer job market right now in this area is
pretty good," said Joy Watson, job development
specialist of the Urban League. "However if the gas
situation becomes bleak, it may have a dampening effect
on all of us." '
Watson said that the unemployment rate for teenagers
in this area is 14 to 15% and relatively higher for black
youth. She said that most summer jobs for teenagers can
be found at theaters, fast food places, restaurants and
through maintenance business.
She said some youth may want to inquire at larger
industries where their parents work or have a relative
inquire at their place of employment.

shortage has been a big help to us."
Sullivan said that \many people are using buses for
recreational travel, and commuting to work because it is
cheaper by bus.
The S&J Charter Service, which began with only one
bus, has now expanded to three 44-passenger buses with
three additional buses coming by September.
The charter service is one of three black owned and
operated services in North Carolina. The bus service
