Nonmetro Earnings Continue Upward.
Gibbs, Robert M.; Parker, Timothy S.
Rural America, v17 n2 p58-60 Sep 2002
The average weekly earnings of nonmetro wage and salary workers continued to rise through 2001, although the pace has ebbed slightly since 2000. Earnings have grown steadily among all major demographic groups, although less educated workers experienced smaller gains than college graduates. Gains for less-educated workers suggest that welfare reform has not had the deleterious effects many feared. (TD)
