Community college graduates with technical degrees start work at higher wages than four-year graduates. While some bachelor’s degree graduates catch up after a few years, nearly 30 percent of “middle skill” workers earn more than the average four-year graduate. But only 10 percent of U.S. workers have vocational certificates and associate degrees compared to 24 percent of Canadians.
