Via NPR All Tech Considered Blog: study finds job seekers motivated by high-speed internet

<a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechconsidered/2010/01/jobseekers_motivated_by_high_s.html">From the Phoenix Center study itself</a>: "We find that broadband use at home or at public locations reduces defection from the labor market due to discouragement by over 50 percent (50%). Dialup Internet use also has a statistically significant effect, reducing labor market discouragement by about one-third. These results provide useful insights for policymakers: on the demand-side, our results show that programs to promote Internet use keep the jobless active in job search and may equate to more employment; and, on the supply-side, our results demonstrate that the promotion of shared connections, such as at libraries, in unserved and underserved areas may, in fact, produce substantial societal benefits."
