Education welfare jobs are a dime a dozen.
But a new report from the Economic Policy Institute finds they can pay a ton in the long run.
The report, Education Welfare Jobs: A Short History, offers a detailed history of how education welfare has shaped the economy.
“Education welfare jobs have been a key component of the American economy for at least a century,” the report states.
“Today, more than half of all the jobs in the United States are in education welfare.
This includes everything from teachers to psychologists to doctors to nurses to accountants, and many of the jobs have risen substantially in value over the last 50 years.”
The report is based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which tracks employment in occupations with a high number of education welfare positions.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis uses a different method for counting employment in education services, such as health and human services.
But the report shows that education welfare employment rose from just under 20 percent of all jobs in 1965 to nearly 25 percent of the workforce in 2011.
“There is a clear correlation between increased educational welfare employment and increased labor force participation,” the study notes.
Education welfare has become a key part of a broad economic strategy to create jobs that benefit people who can’t find jobs, such for those in the country illegally.
The report points to a number of research studies showing that increasing education welfare benefits from all sectors, including the most vulnerable people, such the poor and those with disabilities.
The report also finds that increased educational assistance in the form of higher education loans and grants is linked to improved educational outcomes for students.
The EPI report also points out that education aid has been increasing steadily over the past decade, despite the recession.
Eligibility for public and private loans for higher education increased from just $9.5 billion in 2010 to $19.2 billion in 2012.
In 2013, the Federal Reserve announced new guidelines that require that higher education institutions provide at least 50 percent of their income to student loans and grant programs.
But the report finds that the education aid formula also benefits the wealthy, including from the wealthy students.
“In fact, the educational aid formula for higher ed students actually benefits the wealthiest students by a substantial amount,” the EPI writes.
“The median annual income of the wealthiest group of students in 2011 was just over $200,000, which was nearly four times higher than the median income of middle class students.
And that wealth disparity is even larger for students who are more likely to be eligible for loans, which are based on test scores and other measures.
Higher education aid also disproportionately benefits the poorest students, as the EPP report finds.
When the federal government is required to spend money on education, it has to provide for students that are at risk of losing their jobs.
So, for example, the federal poverty line is $23,050 for a family of four.
But as the study points out, the education assistance formula for students in the poorest group of families actually provides more aid than that for students at the very top of the poverty line.
In addition, the report points out some of the top universities in the U
