WASHINGTON The stunningly slow pace of U.S. job creation in July has provided new ammunition in an intense political debate over job quality.

For months, Democrats have said that the long-delayed employment recovery was concentrated in low-wage jobs that paid far less than those that were lost. White House officials replied that the available data failed to settle the matter one way or the other.

The data are still inconclusive. But the weakness in job creation and the apparent weakness in high-paying jobs may be opposite sides of a coin."
