The top two jobs out of those 10 were the same in 2013 as they were in 1999. Those two, retail sales and cashiers, make up 6 percent of the workforce, up from 5.4 percent in 1999. The third largest, food preparation and serving workers, moved up from ninth in 1999. That job also includes fast food.
Nine of those 10 are in lower-paying jobs. Registered nurses are the only above average-paying job category in the 10 that remains from 1999. General and operations managers were fourth in 1999, but dropped to 11th in 2013.
Depending on the size of the families, some of these pay scales are close to the poverty level.
