This social work infographic begins with a brief historical overview, starting from B.C. 1750, when a Babylonian King issued a “code of justice” to the current-day social work crisis that is seeing large numbers of social workers retiring. The infographic explains that the economic decline combined with a high demand and low supply of resources is becoming an increasing concern for the industry. Fortunately, this means that there is a healthy amount of job opportunity within this field.
With 46.2 million Americans living below the poverty line, approximately 1 million homeless students, and at least 3.3 million instances of child abuse in the U.S., social work is a very pressing need. The infographic goes on to break down average annual incomes by region, measure job satisfaction of social workers and offer education-based solutions to the social work crisis. Finally, the infographic includes celebrities who once worked in the social work field or currently contribute to it via their philanthropic efforts.
