Recently, there was an article on Yahoo! called "Where Have All the Good Jobs Gone?" which talked about a July 2012 report of the same name by the Center for Economic and Policy Research that compared today's job market to that of 1979. The conclusion was that there are fewer "good jobs" today than back then. The definition that the CEPR used as a "good job" was a formula of wages, and employer-provided insurance benefits and retirement plans. The wage of a good job was determined to be set at $18.50 an hour - about $37,000 annually.
