Youth and the Meaning of Work

by Robert J. Havighurst & David Gottlieb - 1975

This chapter deals with the issue of work and its meaning to American youth. The emphasis is not upon questions of career choice, but rather upon the ways in which youth approach work; the way they feel about work; the role they believe work should play within the framework of a total life-style; the expectations and aspirations they have for work; and the discrepancies they see between their educational preparation and their work aspirations.
