JQI update as of 10/2/2020 |The Job Quality Index in September slipped by 0.36%, not much different than the previous month, to land at 82.93 points. The lower JQI reflects a higher number of newly added production and non-supervisory (P&NS) jobs that paid less than the mean weekly income of all P&NS jobs and less than those jobs paying above the mean. Much of this may be due to service sector jobs returning in parts of the South, where there are less restrictions on restaurants.


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.
