Good Jobs that Pay without a BA

While the decline in the manufacturing sector led to a decrease in the number of good jobs available to individuals with only a high school diploma, there are still good jobs available without a bachelor’s degree (B.A.). This report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce finds that there are over 30 million jobs in the U.S. with a median salary of $55,000 a year that do not require a B.A. Many of those jobs are in skilled service sectors such as financial services and health services, and the growth in good jobs has been greatest for workers with an associate’s degree.
