Now is the time for high school and returning college students to begin looking at the help wanted signs around the area for summer employment. The tourist industry in Door County alone helped support over 3,100 jobs and $75 million in labor income in 2016 according to the Door County Visitor Bureau. With many of those jobs hourly and subsidized by tipping in some cases, Gay Pustaver from Money Management Counselors says summer employment offers a good learning opportunity for parents and their children.
Pustaver suggests students save a percentage of the money they make and put it towards something like a down payment on a car or college tuition. You can listen to the entire Money Management Monday interview with Gay Pustaver online with this story.
