You are staring at the difference in number of jobs since 1990 between those in manufacturing and those working as bartenders and waiters. You can see from the chart that waiters and bartenders by numbers are almost the same as those in manufacturing jobs. How can this be? Well the truth is that there has been little or no manufacturing resurgence to discuss as the Obama administration had hoped there might be in relation to the manufacturing sector but there has been one hell of a pick-up in those willing to bartend and serve. This is an indication that low paying non career jobs have been at the forefront of many of those gutless job reports that are ultimately nothing but headline fodder.
