According to new analysis of unemployment data by the National Employment Law Project, while 60 percent of the jobs lost during the 2008-2009 financial crisis were in middle income occupations, the vast majority 58 percent of jobs created under President Obama are low-wage. Those jobs include retail sales, food preparation, home health and customer service.
The recovery continues to be skewed toward low-wage jobs, reinforcing the rise in inequality and Americas deficit of good jobs, said the author of the study, Annette Bernhardt. While theres understandably a lot of focus on getting employment back to pre-recession levels, the quality of jobs is rapidly emerging as a second front in the struggling recovery.
Just half of US adults are currently middle class.

Reason to vote Obama OUT.
It’s so sad to hear day after day how bad things really are. And the MSM continue to cover for their DNC buddies.
The BJ Clinton Speechgasm Glow will be wearing off very soon.
Maybe so....but just you wait until we unionize those burger flippers. Once the AFBU gets revved up...just watch. we’ ll get them $25 an hour jobs with no contribution required pensions and benefits Like the auto workers and teachers get and the economy will soar!!!!!!!
I think burger flippers deserve higher salaries than our congressmen and senators get.
You need to get with the new math so you can understand. If ten jobs paying sixty thousand a year each are lost forever and nine of those people find a job paying twenty thousand a year each and the tenth goes on disability that is a “recovery”.
I sincerely hope that this information will help you.
This might help you even more. I grew up on the farm where we butchered our own hogs. My father would shoot the hog in the brain pan with a .22 and then roll it on its back and stick a long knife into the heart or the main artery in the neck. Blood would spurt four feet into the air. After a short time the flow would slow and the spout of blood would drop lower and lower until if finally was only a very slow seep. In the current thinking prevalent among Obama supporters the slowing of the blood flow meant that the hog was “recovering”.

Gee thanks - you made me lose my appetite for bacon... no, wait, its back.
That’s pretty apt! I’ll have to remember that. Thanks.
