July 30 (Bloomberg) -- Lakshman Achuthan, co-founder and chief operations officer at ECRI and Dan Roth, Executive Editor at LinkedIn discuss the U.S. jobs market as President Barack Obama pushes a new tax business tax structure to spur job creation. They speak on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg Surveillance."

The job market is not doing well, all headlines aside.

I think the core thing here and something that concerns us quite a bit, the types of jobs that make money.

If you happen to be between the ages of 45-54, since the jobs recovery began 3.5 years ago, you have seen job losses, not gains.

Job losses for 45-54 year old approaching a million jobs lost.

That span happens to be where you make the most money, and where you spend the most money.

I think that is at the core of why when you say jobs are great, it does not feel that way.

It is part of why the president is going to chattanooga.

We're just learning from the julianna goldman that he will propose new economic ideas and proposals to pass but gridlock government.

That includes restructuring of business taxes, as long as initial revenue generated goes towards job creation.

Certainly changing the conversation.

Did you see which pose are available.

What is your read?

You still have the same problem of are you creating good jobs?

You can create jobs, but are they the ones that will be part of the next economy?

When you look at what amazon is doing, they say he will create a 7000 new jobs.

You can argue all you want, but having a job has to be better than not having a job.

The ceo of gallup wrote a piece saying unemployment is more like 17 percent, not 7.6%. you have to get these people working.

They have to be in jobs to make sure skills did not atrophy.

I think it is really important.

Politicians are comfortable with a linkedin world.

A huge part of america is less educated for technology and professional skills.

These amazon jobs are the jobs they will get.

Do you mean you have to be connected to someone digitally in order to find a job?

I did not think that is necessarily true.

You have to be in the market, meeting people.

You cannot have giant gaps on your rest of it.

-- on you ur resume.
