Erik Bruvold is with National University's institute for policy research.
"We've done okay at the top end, we're treading water from where we were in 2007 on the bottom, but we have really hollowed out that middle since the beginning of the recession," he said.
He also said, "The biggest issue here is we've lost about 60,000 jobs that were in the middle part of our economy. Those jobs that pay $40,000 to $50,000. We're down over 6,000 jobs from where we were in 2007."
