Part-Time Work and Occupational Value Formation in Adolescence.
Mortimer, Jeylan T.; And Others
Social Forces, v74 n4 p1405-18 Jun 1996
Among approximately 1,000 students interviewed yearly, 9th-12th grade, formation of occupational values was unrelated to employment itself or hours of work. However, opportunity to learn useful skills at work was consistently related to increasingly stable intrinsic and extrinsic value dimensions. As with adults, the conditions of work are what matter to adolescents. Contains 36 references. (Author/SV)
