    Default Comparatively tame

    Hello there,

    The paragraph reads:

    And yet…the comparatively tame recession of the early 2000s had hundreds of these Bas, MAs, JDs, PhDs, and MBAs lining up for a $10-an-hour shit job posted by a scruffy young business owner without a college degree.

    I wonder what exactly the comparatively tame recession mean. Is it "not much critical economic situation" or what? Please help. Thank you.

    not a teacher

    Not very severe, compared with some other recessions.
