Education and second job entrepreneurs
October 07, 1999
Second job entrepreneurs have more education than the average worker.
People who are second job entrepreneurs have primary positions in wage-and-salary jobs and hold second jobs in which they are self-employed in unincorporated businesses. About 70 percent of second job entrepreneurs in 1998 had at least some college. In comparison, 55 percent of all workers had post-high-school education.
Only 4 percent of second job entrepreneurs in 1998 did not have a high school diploma. Of all workers, 13 percent had not received a high school diploma.
