[Excerpt] According to the report, New Haven has been adding high-paying jobs since 2000 that go primarily to college graduates, and only 4 percent of 47,000 jobs paying more than $20 per hour are held by residents of the city’s low-income neighborhoods. Most of the living-wage jobs in New Haven — 81 percent — are held by out-of-towners. SCRCOG Executive Director Carl Amento called the problem “this mismatch between where the jobs are and where the people are.”

Commissioned by the South Central Regional Council of Governments, the region’s branch of the NAACP and the Workforce Alliance, DataHaven analyzed how transportation — or lack thereof — keeps people out of the workforce in Greater New Haven. Most entry and mid-level jobs are located outside of downtown New Haven, while the majority of low-income adults live in the city. This spatial mismatch between supply and demand for regional jobs makes access to transportation a crucial issue to regional economic opportunities.
