The general patterns revealed by Table 8 can be summarized as follows: (1) individuals who reenroll in school earn less than their continuously schooled counterparts immediately upon returning to the work force; (2) this wage gap increases if they increase the "waiting time" to the reenrollment; (3) rapid wage growth in the post-return period causes the gap between returners and nonreturners to close over time; and (4) the more prereturn
experience the returners have, the more quickly this gap closes.
