    Ahlstrand, Bassi, and McMurrer's study addresses five key research questions, including: 1) how much training is provided to lower-wage workers; 2) who tends to provide this training; 3) what are the barriers and enablers to effective training; 4) what roles do supply and demand play in determining how much training is provided; and 5) what role might external incentives play in whether or not training is offered?
