UVA Study Highlights Impact Of Sour Economy On Working Class

A new University of Virginia study shows how working-class Americans have been affected by a shrinking supply of stable full-time jobs with health insurance and pensions for people who don’t have a college degree. Sarah Corse, who teaches sociology at UVA, found working-class people are less likely to get married, or stay hitched than those with a college diploma. She says an insecure work environment affects how people live when they are┬ánot on the job. The UVA Associate Professor says the study involved men and women of all races between 18 and 70.
