This chapter studies the inefficiency of job referral networks that exist among the black poor. It first tries to determine if there are any deficiencies in access, and then considers the willingness of different parties involved to take part in these job referral networks. The chapter also examines two approaches that would help in the understanding of these inefficacious job referral networks.

Keywords:   job referral networks, black poor, deficiencies, access, mobilization
