Temporary Job Opportunity
As you know MICAH and Black Health Coalition won a settlement from WI Dept of Transportation which led to the funding of the JobLines bus routes (Routes 6 and 61). The UWM Center for Economic Development is working with CMR Marketing to measure the economic impact of the JobLines bus routes. This will help inform County decision making regarding future funding of these routes.

We are looking for 6–8 community members who may be interested in doing Community Research. Please find attached the description of the responsibilities of a Community Researcher. Application deadline Nov 15. Download application

In brief:
- We are seeking 6–8 people to do surveying on the MCTS JobLines bus routes (Routes 6 and 61).
- Community Researchers will be trained before conducting the surveying
- Community Researchers will be paid $10 per hour
