The issue of family unemployment is examined in terms of its effect on adolescent work values and self-concept. The subjects were 344 high school youths from an Israeli development town. The study findings show no significant differences among youth from families where the father is either employed or unemployed. These results tend to be consistent with other research in the sense that father's work status has little, if any, impact on adolescent family member's attitudes toward work and self.
