New Study Shows Highest Unemployment Centered on Low Income and Undereducated
What has been missing from the public debate over the labor market crisis is an honest and detailed analysis of which American workers have been most adversely affected by the deep deterioration in labor markets. - Sum, Khatiwada and Palma

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Stark County follows the national trend that education equals more earnings.

Now, a new study prepared for the C.S. Mott Foundation[1] may indicate how critical that trend and the higher skills that accompany it can be for  communities. The study maintains that it is the undereducated and low skilled workers in the lowest income categories have been the most affected during the recession. Workers in this category have faced what the researchers call a "Great Depression type unemployment rate of nearly 31%."
