ANOVA for working time

Please see the attached file for full description.

The General Social Survey is an annual survey given to a random selection of about adults in the United States. Among the many questions asked are "What is the highest level of education you've completed?" and "If you're employed full-time, how many hours do you spend working at your job during a typical week?"
We're interested in examining whether or not there are differences in the typical work week length based on the level of education of the worker. We perform a one-way, independent-samples ANOVA test, with the "groups" in the ANOVA being categories of highest educational degree of the worker ("less than high school," "bachelor's degree," etc.) and the variable being the number of hours written down by the worker in answering the survey question.
