The jobs in the middle

lisamahapatra's picture
It’s the jobs in the middle of the pay spectrum that are missing. The economy has lost more than 200,000 teaching, construction and community-service jobs since 2010 -- all occupations that pay between $40,000 and $60,000 per year. This means that people who are reasonably well-educated but don’t have highly technical skills of graduate degrees are stuck. The jobs they’re actually qualified for don’t exist, and the really well-paying jobs all require skill sets they don’t have. Such workers end up underemployed -- overqualified for the jobs that they can get and paid lower wages as a result.
