The lack of bus service makes it more difficult for the businesses there to find qualified employees because everyone has to own a car to get there.

Exactly. The lack of transportation options forces businesses (and thereby consumers after the cost is passed along) to subsidize the high cost of car transportation. It also reduces competitiveness. If no one can get to work without a car, companies have to pay a much higher rate to attract a similarly qualified applicant. For the employees it is no convenience at all. I go to work to pay for my car loan, and I pay for my car loan to go to work.
