5. That sounds like the way to do it, tuition assistance for young workers

I live in a small town. mainly rural area, but we get a huge tourist influx this time of year. (Lake George). When I was in school, I had a summer job at the seasonal amusement park. Back then, it seemed like every kid/student in the area applied there. I got lucky, when I applied, they were desperate for a "Cinderella," I fit the description and got hired right away. But now? I'm told that they have to "import" workers - and last year they couldn't even open full time because there just weren't enough employees. They might attract more workers - even seasonally - if they offered some college help, since when I was there, that was the age range - students and retired folks. But we were lucky to get minimum wage.
