Episode 19 - Does Low Pay Equal Low-Quality Programs?

In the ongoing debate around short-term program outcomes, one issue is often missed – market dynamics. Dr. Michelle Van Noy discusses the issues of labeling low-pay jobs as low-quality programs without factoring in the labor market.
Dr. Van Noy is the Director of The Education and Employment Research Center at the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations. Dr. Van Noy and Dr. Altmire discuss jobs that are often low pay but important to society, how policymakers should look at short-term Pell funding, and credentialing.
