Are there quality jobs or business ownership opportunities available to all residents?

Business ownership and job quality play an important role in helping families earn income and build wealth over time. Earned income is the single most important contributing factor to a household’s ability to save money, access affordable credit and build assets, while business equity is second only to homeownership nationally as a share of household wealth.
