Good Jobs Without a BA
Change, 1991 to 2015, in SREB states
Many good jobs require some postsecondary education or training with a certificate or associate degree but not a bachelor’s degree. Already, most states need more workers at this level. From 1991 to 2015, a loss in blue-collar non-bachelor’s degree good jobs in SREB states was often offset by an increase in skilled-services good jobs for workers without bachelor’s degrees.
