Do you find this to be the case more and more? Are the new jobs created not as good as the ones they have been replacing?

Economist: Jobs being created aren't as good as the jobs lost (http://www.savannahnow.com/exchange/stories/082203/EXCGeorgiaeconomy.shtml) - Georgia may lead the rest of the country in the number of jobs created in a month, but they're not as good as the jobs Georgians are losing, said a noted economic forecaster Thursday.

The good news is an "optical illusion," said Rajeev Dhawan, director of the Economic Forecasting Center at Georgia State University in Atlanta.

"This time, the low-paying industries are leading job growth in the region which drastically affects spending potential," he said during the release of the center's quarterly forecast.
