An Associated Press investigation released in January 2013 found that millions of mid-skill, mid-pay jobs have disappeared over the past five years and have been replaced with technology. That experience has left a growing number of technologists and economists wondering if middle-class jobs will return when the global economy recovers, or are they lost forever because of the advance of technology.
