Jamba Juice is also one of the companies participating in the White House's summer jobs initiative for workers ages 16 to 24, announced by President Obama in January. On Wednesday, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis announced the launch of an online "Summer Jobs+ Bank" with nearly 300,000 summer jobs targeted toward low-income youth.
Those openings include credited internships, job shadowing, mentorship and 90,000 paid jobs. The program's jobs bank compiles jobs targeted toward youth from both job boards and companies.
"America's young people face record unemployment, and we need to do everything we can to make sure they've got the opportunity to earn the skills and a work ethic that come with a job," President Obama said in January when announcing the program.
Republicans pushed back to the summer jobs initiative after its launch.
"Everyone agrees internships are a helpful tool for youth, particularly in this economy. Yet rather than taking credit for programs that companies already had in place, a more constructive use of the White House's time would be calling on Democratic leaders to act on the dozens of House-passed jobs bills still sitting idle in Democratic-run Senate," a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said in January about the White House's summer jobs initiative.
Jane Oates, the Department of Labor's Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training, said she applauds "anybody who has done this in the past and continues to do so."
Oates added that city mayors have been managing summer jobs program with and without federal money for years.
"We have never pretended that we invented the concept of summer jobs. What we think that were doing that's different is advertising these opportunities to all young people," she said. "Whether an employer wants someone with math experience or one year of community college, this means every eligible person in any area would see the opportunity."
