MILWAUKEE - It may be difficult for teenagers to find work this summer. 

"With the unemployment rate where it is, we've had older people with work experience taking those jobs," said Manpower Group's Melanie Holmes. 

Teenagers looking for work should consider jobs in the 'Leisure & Hospitality' sector, Holmes said.

"Manpower's 2nd Quarter Employment Outlook Survey indicated a lot of summer jobs are in that sector," explained Holmes.

Those jobs include positions in tourism, restaurants, snack-bars, pools, etc.
