Then and Now: Obama Administration Failed to Deliver on Its Promise to Create Jobs Paying “Good Wages”

August 31, 2012


“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)

“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)
