Abstract

Labor market issues are reviewed in terms of mobility and policy resulting from transportation improvements. Research on Meso level regional adjustment versus micro level search processes are reviewed. A spatial interaction approach to assessing changes in regional access and regional industrial mix is outlined. Hypotheses with respect to transportation and labor markets are discussed. Empirical evidence of the impact of high-speed rail on labor markets and their structure is reviewed. Conclusions are drawn and new research questions are identified.
