Re the derisive letters Time received from older Americans about its January story on teenage unemployment [Feb. 1]: As a teen who has been unsuccessful in finding a job, I am offended by generalizations that teens have minimal skills and a poor work ethic. It is this sort of mind-set--and not just the economy--that prevents teenagers from getting jobs.

I am deeply offended that so many readers would label all working teenagers as lazy, rude and incompetent. Lighten up on us mature, hardworking students who are struggling to find a way to pay the bills.
