Employers and students have reaped the benefits of the Lincoln Trail Area Development District’s (LTADD) summer youth program.
The program has placed residents aged 18 to 21 in Nelson, Marion and Washington counties with employers for the summer for the past two years.
“What we do is, we pay their wages,” Terri Thomas, with the LTADD, said. “Whatever the (employer) pays, that’s what we pay. If, for instance (someone) worked at TG Kentucky, we paid what TG would start their pay.”
