Need for more college graduates, differences in wages for college and high school graduates

In The Undereducated American, Anthony P. Carnevale and Stephen J. Rose contend that if the U.S. were to add 20 million postsecondary-educated workers to the U.S. workforce by 2025, income inequality would decline.
They envision:
15 million would hold Bachelor's degrees,
1 million Associates degrees
4 million would have attended some college but earned no degree

They include in their report a chart showing wage differential for college and high school graduates in various fields. The report, issued by Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, was described in today's Academic Impressions e-mail alert Higher Ed Impact, Daily Pulse: News & Trends in Higher Ed, June 27, 2011.
