Huffington Post says community college grads pull higher earnings in early stages of career

The Huffington Post reports that community college grads make higher salaries than their 4-year counterparts…at least to begin with.

2009 Florida employment data shows that those who earned an associate degree in science or a bachelor’s degree from a community college earned $47,708 in their first year of employment, while those who earned a bachelor’s degree from a private four-year college made $44,558 — and those with a bachelor’s from a public four-year institution only $36,552.”
