Job Quality Index
The Job Quality Index measures the quality of American jobs as a ratio of high-quality jobs to low-quality jobs. Quality is defined as the mean weekly wage for all US production/nonsupervisory workers. Over the last 30 years, the growth in low quality jobs as manufacturing jobs are lost and replaced by service jobs, many of them low-wage, low-hour, has moved the index down. The JQI is published monthly.
