Almost half of Americans work in low-wage jobs

America's unemployment rate is at a half-century low, but it also has a job-quality problem that affects nearly half the population, with a study finding 44% of U.S. workers are employed in low-wage jobs that pay median annual wages of $18,000.

Contrary to popular opinion, these workers aren't teenagers or young adults just starting their careers,

We saw this coming when Trump gave his $1.5 trillion tax cut with a 40 percent cut in Corporate tax rates

Very little managed to trickle down to the workers

So it's Trump's fault they don't have enough ambition to better themselves?

Wahhhh!

Interesting.

One question.

Is that higher, lower, or about the same as previous presidents?

I can't believe we're getting a lecture on work ethic from a guy who uses the idiot Ed Norton the sewer worker for an avatar.

Oh come on, as much as I was against the tax cuts, they did not cause this. This is a long time in the making.

I was looking over the Descriptive statistics and there are some interesting things...

Low wage workers are making less, plus they are working less. That is a bad combination.

Yeah, the obummer economy caused millions to lose their full time jobs, and now, thanks to Trump, that terrible situation is being reversed.

Of course obummer, your hero, had 8 years to fuck this country up. Trump has only had three years to correct that mess.

Part of this is because employers have never had such an easy time finding incredibly qualified hard working employees. It's so easy to replace workers so companies get rid of their best employees before they are due for a raise. It's an employers market. This is leading to overqualified work until ready to drop workers filling low pay jobs.

Perhaps these not teenagers or young adults should aspire to do more with their lives than work an $18,000 a year job. Maybe they should learn a skill that’s worth more than that

44% of all workers—qualify as “low-wage.” Their median hourly wages are $10.22, and median annual earnings are about $18,000

What a muddled claim.

So half of these "low-wage" workers earn more than $18,000 a year, half earn less.
Half earn less than $10.22 an hour, half earn more.

If we booted 20 million low wage illegals, low wage Americans would earn more.
