The Corporate (part-time) wasteland!!!

Question: Where have all the good jobs gone? Answer: They turned into part-time no benefit jobs!
So far this year, low-paying industries have provided 61 percent of the nation's job growth, even though these industries represent just 39 percent of overall U.S. jobs, according to Labor Department numbers analyzed by Moody's Analytics. Mid-paying industries have contributed just 22 percent of this year's job gain.
When you couple this fact with the increasing costs of upper education (and the long-term debt accompanied with this), this new world order of American work is not sustainable!
