(They were talking about this on Morning Joe this morning, a typical 
anti-Trump show on MSNBC. They were not sure why such good news did not 
have an effect on Trump's poor polling stats. The Guardian article 
explains why.)

However, the jobs report showed once again that the majority of gains 
were in low-paying service industries. Jobs in food services and 
drinking establishments rose by 53,000 in July. The industry has added 
313,000 jobs over the year. Healthcare employment increased by 39,000. 
Job growth in higher-paid sectors including construction, manufacturing 
and mining was marginal.
