College grads are getting the benefits of the recovery economy:

While middle wage jobs show little signs of recovery, a new study from Georgetown University discovered there have been more "good" jobs (which pay at least $53,000 a year) than people have assumed, and 2.8 million of the 2.9 million good jobs gained in the recent period of recovery have gone to college graduates. Anthony Carnevale, the lead author of this report, gave me the scoop on this important data, noting that "Good jobs that have been prominent in this recovery include managers, software developers, physicians and surgeons, registered nurses, financial analysts and computer occupations," all pointing toward the continued importance of a college education, despite what certain pessimists might claim.
