The Work Values of Marginalized Adult Learners (1998)

This survey assessed the work-related values of one hundred and thirty six marginalized adult learners enrolled in 8 Adult Basic Education courses. The results revealed that ethnicity influenced both work values and adult life roles. As well, although respondents' rankings of work values did not differ by gender, females attached greater importance to values and life roles.

This paper presents implications for ABE practice and research including: the use of work values for counseling and teaching; the need for values clarification and comparative values learning; and future research to enable comparisons of work values between marginalized and working populations.
