There’s an under-the-radar job crisis hurting millions of Americans

For presidential administrations of both parties, there is one common denominator: the tendency to treat new jobs as the holy grail of economic success or failure.

That tendency was on full display in President Donald Trump’s reaction to the October jobs report that the Bureau of Labor Statistics released, which showed the US unemployment rate at an almost 50-year low of 3.6%.

But a focus on the number of jobs can distract us from the crisis of job quality in America that long predates Trump’s presidency: US workers have endured four consecutive decades of declining job quality.
