JQI update as of 9/4//2020 |The Job Quality Index is down 0.4% to 83.26 on a 100 scale as more service sector jobs were added to the mix this month. The decline in the JQI reflects the fact that more low-quality, i.e. low-wage and low-hour, jobs are being added back to the economy. They were the ones that were hit hardest in the early months of the pandemic.
Check out our innovative Job Quality Index (JQI) which, for the first time ever, measures the QUALITY of jobs created each month, not just the QUANTITY of job creation. If we are to have a prosperous America, we need to balance trade and grow manufacturing so the quality of jobs is much better in the US.
