Are Bad Service and the Improving Economy Related?

A local blogger theorizes that declining service in restaurants is related to the improving economy. She only lists one example in her post— a poorly-executed meal at a top restaurant in Atlanta, widely recognized as one of the best restaurants with the best service in Atlanta— but the premise is interesting, although perhaps a stretch. Here's what she says:

When the downturn occurred, many educated individuals were not able to find jobs in corporate America, and turned to the service industry for employment. Their advanced capacity/skill levels resulted in a higher level of service. Now that companies are beginning to hire again, the service industry is losing that talent.
