Title: Recession jobs machine
: Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Date: Nov. 18, 1991
About this cartoon: The nation was feeling the effects of a recession, and workers were not only being "downsized," but the new jobs they could find were often much worse than the executive, white-collar jobs they had just lost. The Bush Administration claimed that total job numbers were holding steady, which was true, but the quality and pay of those jobs was not necessarily staying the same.
Noteworthy: The second woman from the right is holding a shrunken paycheck, if you can't read it, to contrast with the second man from the left.
