a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"Unemployment Falls Fast in U.S. If Men Get College Degree" - Bloomberg Businessweek. 04/11/2012.

Men currently lag women on higher education. Martha Bailey doesn't understand why more men aren't availing themselves of a college education when the financial premium is so high.
