34:1A-70. Legislative findings and declarations
The Legislature hereby finds and declares that it is not in the public interest for any citizens of this State to be unemployed solely because of an inability to reach a place of potential employment. Lack of transportation to job sites in New Jersey is a barrier to employment for many people as evidenced by a Department of Labor and Industry study in June of 1977 indicating that 23% of unemployed workers surveyed could not be placed in jobs principally because they could not reach one or more specific places of employment. This problem will be compounded to a greater degree in the future as employers continue to relocate outside of urban centers, thus becoming relatively more inaccessible to inner city workers who lack transportation.
