Summer jobs may be a little more interesting for high school and college students in Missouri. Governor Jay Nixon toured a bio-chemistry lab Monday to announce details of a new summer employment program.
It will match as many as 5,000 Missouri teens and young adults with summer jobs in so-called "next-generation" industries.
Nixon says 300 Missouri employers have already committed to hire the young people to give them job training and work experience.
Federal stimulus money is being used to pay for the program.
