Mentoring Program Newsletter

Hello Alumni Mentors and Student Protégés:

A recent Bloomberg article by Ben Steverman discusses vacation time and the fact that Americans don’t take vacation time they have earned. Lonnie Golden, professor of economics at Penn State Abington, contributed to the article. Dr. Golden regularly contributes his expertise in the areas of work-life policies, overwork, and time use and worker will being. (See additional articles by Dr. Golden.)

Please discuss your thoughts about work-life balance, work expectations, and job security in your particular career field.
