Study: Many College Grads Can't Afford to Take Teaching, Social Work Jobs

Laramie, Wy – A new report by the Public Interest Research Group shows that all states, including Wyoming, may have trouble recruiting social workers and teachers. The report says about 35 percent of all graduates could not survive on the starting salaries offered to Wyoming teachers and social workers because of debt from student loans.
Cory Nadler is an organizer with the group that did this report.
He says all efforts to give out scholarships based on need will help alleviate this situation and he compliments Wyoming for creating the Hathaway Scholarship.
