PSYCHOLOGY FACULTY MEMBER FEATURED IN USA TODAY

Debra Major, associate professor of psychology, was quoted in Thursday's edition of USA Today.

Major, who has studied work/family relationships, discussed her research in the story titled "More Americans put families ahead of work" by reporter Stephanie Armour.

"In this economy," Major said in the story, "working 70 hours a week no longer makes a difference in how much you get compensated or how fast you advance. Employees want to prioritize their own values, not the values that the company says are important."

The entire story can be viewed on the Web at http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2002-12-04-family-work-usat_x.htm
