So exactly what kinds of jobs are people actually finding these days? [chart]

An estimated 589,000 jobs were created in the first three months of 2016 – an accomplishment the Obama administration and liberal analysts tout. Just what kinds of jobs were created should have them rethinking that self-praise.
