New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 2, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Opinions dave kramer, Editor and I Publisher JIM WEBRE, Managing Editor Page4A    Herald-Zertung    New    Braunfels    Texas      b    u    n    d    a    y    frauast ■ _ EditorialSummer youth work program worthwhile Congratulations to those governmental offices hiring area teens under the Alamo Area Council of Governments summer youth employment program. Such programs can work when employers, public and private, work together to take advantage of those federal dollars available to augment wages of young people who are willing and encouraged to learn while working. Almost any business can use an extra hired hand; they can't always afford to pay minimum wages to have them Many adults as well as young people entering the labor market tor the first time, don't know how important are things like timely arrival at the job site, proper attire, professional courtesy and a displayed desire to learn and work It employers of all kinds would cooperate with and take advantage of those programs the country can afford, such as AACOG s summer youth jobs training program, and it the participants will view their opportunity as a learning experience. the benefits can be many. As we struggle with public education funding and the need for technical training and vocational programs, this cost-shared means of teaching appropriate on-the-job behavior is a verv real move back to basics.
