AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to  establishing  the  summer
  employment program

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature finds
and declares that summer employment is an important  formative  activity
for  youth  as  they make transitions between middle and high school and
into employment or post-secondary education. The legislature also  finds
that  the  summer  months provide an ideal time frame during which youth
can earn money and experience the world of work without placing  limita-
tions  on  the  time  that  can,  and should, be spent preparing for and
attending classes.
  The legislature also finds that employment for youth can be valued not
only in terms of the work performed but also in relation to the enhanced
self-esteem of participants that comes, in part, from earned income.
  The legislature also finds that employment provides an opportunity for
young people to gain interpersonal and employability  skills,  including
team building, conflict resolution and problem solving, that are comple-
mentary  to  academic activity and that will serve employers well in the
future when they have a pool of job candidates who are experienced  with
workplace expectations.
  Therefore  the  legislature  declares that a summer employment program
would have significant benefit for both participants and employers.
  S 2. The labor law is amended by adding a new article 25-C to read  as
follows:
                              ARTICLE 25-C
                        SUMMER EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM
SECTION 862.   SHORT TITLE.
        862-A. ADMINISTRATION.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
