Value-Added Workers Earn Less, Have Less Education Than Other Rural Manufacturing Workers.
Gibbs, Robert
Rural Conditions and Trends, v8 n3 p19-22 1998
Current Population Survey data indicate that value-added industries, which tend to use raw lumber and agricultural products as inputs, employed one-third of all rural manufacturing workers in 1996. Compared to other rural manufacturing workers, value-added workers generally had lower occupational status, less education, and lower incomes, and were more likely to be male and Hispanic.
