This book explores how labour markets are changing - jobs are being created but they pay less and job security is declining, as is the payoff for experience and seniority. The authors discuss training, private-public partnerships, job searching and community development corporations (CDCs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) as social agents. They also take the reader through numerous case studies, using examples from across the United States. They conclude with their recommendations for better design, promotion and evaluation of community-based workforce development networks.
