We often hear the advice to ''stay in school''. Today, that advice is more important than ever.
- More education equals more pay and less chance of unemployment.
- Earnings go up with every year of school completed and get an extra boost when a degree program is completed.
- Education pays off because better educated workers learn tasks more easily and are usually more organized.
- Remember that differences in earnings can occur within academic disciplines and that the occupation you choose will make a definite difference in your earning capacity.
