Low-Skill Workers in Rural America Face Permanent Job Loss. Policy Brief Number 2
Glasmeier, Amy; Salant, Priscilla
Carsey Institute
Global economic competition and other factors have cost rural America 1.5 million jobs in the past six years. This brief analyzes job displacement figures from around the country between 1997 and 2003. The loss of rural jobs was particularly large in the manufacturing sector, and the rate of loss was higher in the rural Northeast than in the rest of rural America. The key causes fueling the trend have been the push for cost savings through automation and cheaper labor overseas. (Contains 6 figures and 2 endnotes.)
