Provo, UT (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
On April 6th, 2012, The White House released a report on the Women and the Economy. Created by President Obama, he solidified his belief in creating a better future. In this report, the statistics were staggering, women make up almost 50% of the workforce. This means that women are now becoming the sole provider in the household. For women to be able to do this, they need an education. The White House reported that women are now becoming the majority in nursing schools, colleges and graduate schools.
Since 1962, women have increased their participation in labor by over 20%. If this trend continues, our economy would add over 5.1 million workers, which is equivalent to a 3.5% increase in the GDP. Now, more than ever, education is necessary for women to enter the workforce. Of the 3.4 million students that have received Pell Grants, since 2008, about 2.3 million are women. Women realize that earning their education with the best online universities will help them get access to the best careers.
Women are making use of the education that they get, of the 16,000 small business administration loans, over $4.5 billion was granted to women-owned businesses. Over 30% of American women own a small business, which generates over $1.2 trillion in sales. Women are crucial to our economy. These statistics are crystal clear: The success that American women enjoy directly impacts the success of American families and the American economy. For the United States to continue to go forward, “women must be able to help provide for their families and contribute fully to our economy”. This means that women should be able to get the education they need, when they want it, to help them break into the best careers.
