Then
"A well designed recovery plan will not only create numerous jobs, but also many jobs paying good wages and providing full-time employment." (The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan, January 2009)

Now
"While a majority of jobs lost during the downturn were in the middle range of wages, a majority of those added during the recovery have been low paying, according to a new report from the National Employment Law Project." (The New York Times, "Majority of New Jobs Pay Low Wages, Study Finds," August 31, 2012)
