Rothstein, Donna S.
Monthly Labor Review, v124 n8 p25-37 Aug 2001
Comparison of National Longitudinal Survey of Youth data from 1979 and 1997 found that both groups had similar rates of employment as adolescents. Students who worked 20 or fewer hours per week during school were more likely to attend college; youths who worked a greater percentage of weeks during the school year worked more consistently as adults.
