This paper examines some of the short- and long-term costs and benefits of high school employment for youth using the High School and Beyond Survey collected by the National Center for Education Statistics. It focuses on whether the effects of working while in school differ for different types of students, particularly for students at risk of long-term employment problems. It also compares the effects of working on youths considered not at-risk to the at-risk population.
