63 PERCENT OF ALL U.S. JOBS CREATED SINCE 1990 HAVE BEEN LOW WAGE JOBS

Since 1990, the U.S. economy has produced millions of jobs, but as you will see below nearly two-thirds of them have been low wage jobs. Of course this is one of the biggest factors causing the systematic erosion of the American middle class. Today, half of all U.S. workers make less than $33,000 a year, but meanwhile the cost of living has been steadily increasing. Housing costs, health insurance and other basic necessities have been rising much faster than our paychecks have, and this has put an enormous amount of financial stress on hard working American families.

    For the first time, U.S. manufacturing workers with college degrees will soon outnumber those without. It’s part of a shift to automation that has increased factory output, opened opportunities for women and reduced prospects for the nation’s lowest-skilled workers

    There are fewer opportunities for poorly educated immigrants Many who want to come to the U.S. come to be supported. Fact is our resources are finite and limited.
