Mid-wage occupations, paying between $13.83 and $21.13 per hour, made up about 60 percent of the job losses during the recession. But those mid-wage jobs have made up just 27 percent of the jobs gained during the recovery.
Add in jobs lost that where over the 21.13/hr and I bet it was easily over 70%, if not 80+% of the total jobs lost. Makes sense, 80/20 rule and all.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the 80/20 rule.
