The researchers sent 2,000 applications from fictitious candidates with at least five GCSEs good and relevant work experience to 667 current vacancies. They found that, even in cities where a strong labor market, there were 24 unemployed persons continued retail vacancy, and 50 for each vacancy. The Head of poverty JRF, Chris Goulden said:
