Here comes a surprise. Who is the country’s biggest creator of low-wage jobs? Watch this video to see.
From Good Jobs Nation:
Our economy is shifting from good-paying middle-class jobs to low-wage jobs. Even as we finally get a monthly jobs report that shows the country creating enough jobs for all the people entering the workforce (but not enough to put the long-term unemployed back to work) we learn that far too many of these jobs are low-wage jobs in retail, food service, etc… and zero in manufacturing.
Our government should be the role model, providing good jobs with good pay and good benefits — including good public-employee pensions. If we shift to using contractors that pay low wages we are telling businesses that this is the way they should do business as well.
