Gainful Employment

Gainful Employment

A job that allows self-sufficiency. There is no hard-and-fast definition of what constitutes gainful employment. For example, pizza delivery may pay the bills for one person but only serve as a cash generator for another. Gainful employment usually (but not always) implies work in a white collar or skilled blue collar position. Debt level, family commitments and other monthly bills affect the extent to which one is gainfully employed.
