The Servant Class City

The second chapter looks at the transformed labor market of the inner city, documenting the large expansion of low-wage, service class occupations, and the challenges inner city residents have finding a good job. There are many individuals with different skills and experiences that can or cannot move up the job ladder that each of their occupation offer. In short, the quality of one’s job matters; it can have a very strong effect on one’s occupational mobility over time, and ultimately one’s economic opportunities in the long run.
