Good Jobs that Pay without a BA  

Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, in partnership with JPMorgan Chase & Co., has released new research that finds that even with the overall decline in manufacturing, nearly half of states have added good blue-collar jobs that don’t require bachelor’s degrees (BAs).  Good Jobs that Pay without a BA: A State-by-State-Analysis finds that since 1991, workers with associate’s degrees have claimed a rising share of good jobs in every state. The centerpiece of this release is a companion website,, which explores 30 million good jobs that pay without a BA and the demographics of those who hold them. The interactive website features a tool that allows users to sort jobs by industry, occupation, and education level at the national and state level.
