Predicting Employee Wages at Southern Textiles

Southern Textiles wishes to predict employee wages by using the employee's experience X1 and the employee's education X2. Employees are categorized as having a college degree or not having a college degree in their personnel files, so the variable "education" is a qualitative variable. Thus, X2 is an indicator (0, 1) variable.
