摘 要：Low-skilled workers lack marketable skills and typically work in what Goos and Manning (2007) call "lousy jobs." In this study, we identify among these lousy jobs, those that facilitate economic independence among low-skilled single mothers. We call these jobs "good jobs." In our analysis, job attributes are broadened to include non-wage attributes that contribute to future earnings such as job stability and advancement opportunities. We find that even after controlling for a worker's current wage offer and hours of work, the likelihood and the speed of achieving economic independence are highly correlated with employment in occupations with higher growth ratios of part-time workers and unemployment, and occupations that require certificates or educational degrees.
