Thank you!

Thanks for your interest in our report, Rise with the STARs: Building a Stronger Labor Market for STARs, Communities, and Employers

This research reveals the severe negative impact excluding STARs has on employers, and uncovers key findings such as:

  • It takes 30 years of work experience for a STAR to catch up to the wage a bachelor’s degree holder earns on day one of their career.
  • Employers’ increased use of unnecessary bachelor’s degree screens has contributed to the exclusion of STARs from almost 7.5 million jobs that historically have offered mobility for STARs.
  • Employers can make deliberate choices to reverse the decline in economic mobility for STARs and strengthen their talent pipelines.
