The job market has expanded for women and teens in the past 60 years, but it has shrunk drastically for those without at least a high school diploma. In the 1950s, it was common for women to stay at home, but as time time went on, more and more woman fought for equality and jobs outside of their homes. Teens today are also working more than they did 60 years ago. Today's teen balance school, work, and social activities like never before. For those who choose to leave school, finding work is difficult. High school drop outs have a much more difficult time finding employment.
