A new study finds that a majority of new jobs added during the nation's recovery are paying low wages.
The national employment law project says before the economic downturn, the majority of jobs were paying in the middle range.
According to the report, the disappearance of midwage, midskill jobs is part of a long term trend that some have dubbed a hollowing out of the work force.
The report looked at 366 occupations.
The occupations with the fastest growth were retail sales at a median wage of $10.97 and food preparation workers at $9.04 an hour.
