Does Education Pay?

Yes, college requires work. Does it pay off? Here’s what the Bureau of Labor Statistics has to say about it:

Chart of 2009 Unemployment rates by education BLS
2009 Unemployment Rates and Earnings by Education (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics)

That’s for full-time workers at least 25 years old. The more education you complete, the more likely you are to have a job right now, and the more likely you are to earn a livable wage.

Now get back to your homework.
