Economic instability affects family life
August 19 , 2013
A new research shows that working-class Americans are less likely to get married or have children than those with college degrees.
The study interviewed subjects between the ages of 18 to 70 and has shown that the disappearance of stable jobs with pensions and health insurance has affected the working-class people in the country. Sarah Corse of the University of Virginia said people who are not certain about their future don't imagine themselves providing for anyone else. Another investigator pointed out the fact that such people have issues trusting potential partners as well.
The findings show that those with college education tend to end up with stable jobs and stability in relationships as well. This research points out in an efficient way as to how economic insecurity affects peoples' personal choices.
