Okay now this is making sense. Simple examples:

$ jobs

Outputs from the current shell.

$ jobs | cat

Jobs is now in a subshell, created by the pipe, with a new jobs table so no

$ echo $(jobs) | cat
$ echo `jobs` | cat

Allows you to pipe the jobs output in a work around the whole subshell thing.
