Discussion Points:

2) Do you work part-time during the school year? How do you fit it into your schedule?

3) In Wiley’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making you can read about accounting for Employment Benefit Expense (see pages 528-9). In a situation where employment is increasing, what would you generally expect would happen to this expense?
