Teens to Fidelity: We Want Summer Jobs

News summary by MFWire's editors

This morning, a group of teenagers plan to hold a rally outside Fidelity Investments' [profile] office on Congress Street in Boston. The rally is part of a broader effort by the Youth Jobs Coalition to ask private companies to create more summer employment, The Boston Globe reports.

The coalition also plans to march to the State House to push legislators to set aside money for summer jobs.

Why is Fidelity a target? Lewis Finfer, an adult organizer for the Youth Jobs Coalition, told the paper that Fidelity provided three summer jobs in Boston last year and zero in 2010 under the state-assisted School-to-Career program.

Fidelity spokeswoman Jenny Engle told Globe that the firm has been in contact recently with the coalition about sponsoring summer jobs, adding that Fidelity has a broad partnership with schools in Massachussetts.

Fidelity is not the sole mutual fund firm mentioned in the article. Here's an excerpt:
Along the route, marchers will be told about other companies, including Putnam Investments and Brown Brothers Harriman, that the coalition believes could provide more summer jobs.
