The Great Recession left millions of middle-class Americans without jobs, and many have had no luck in finding another one. Some, seemingly, are so desperate that they've signed up with the new CBS reality show, "The Job," in the hope of landing a position with a high-profile employer, such as Epic Records, Live Nation or Cosmopolitan magazine.

But the show has its critics, including the New York Post, which called the program "offensive," in part because contestants are trying to land average, middle-class jobs, not those that offer the superstar status of other reality shows, such as "American Idol" or "The Voice."
