Summary
"Even as the United States enjoys a booming economy and historically low levels of unemployment, millions of Americans remain out of work or underemployed, and joblessness continues to plague many urban communities, racial minorities, and people with little education. In Jobs for the Poor, Timothy Bartik calls for a dramatic shift in the way the United States confronts this problem. Today, most efforts to address this problem focus on the ways to make workers more employable, such as job training and welfare reform. Bartik argues that the United States should put more emphasis on ways to increase the interest of employers in creating jobs for the poor - or the labor demand side of the labor market."--BOOK JACKET
