Abstract:

This report finds that over the last 25 years, more than 70 per cent of college students have been working while enrolled. In particular, it finds: (1) everyone works and everyone learns, but you can't work your way through college anymore; (2) 60 per cent of working learners are women; and (3) young working learners gravitate towards sales and office support while mature working learners are more concentrated in management.
