Dear Representative Barlow,

A low-wage job applicant’s distance from a potential employer is the largest factor in receiving an interview, according to our new policy brief.

We hope this short summary of a study on low-wage job applicants is helpful for your work on the Transportation Committee.

The UC Davis Center for Poverty Research is one of three national poverty centers funded by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Part of our mission is to provide stakeholders with timely and useful research on poverty in the United States.

Visit our website for resources that include policy briefs, research papers, and facts and figures on U.S. poverty. You can also sign up for our newsletter for regular updates on our work.
