Associate degree grads make more at first
At first, anyway. Early in the careers of both.
Overall, the four-yr degree is worth it, but this isn't always gospel.
The return on investment of a four-yr degree over a lifetime is 15%. More than made in most stocks.

The best 2-yr fields? Construction, IT, high tech manufacturing, or health.
Parents and students are taking a tougher look at all this.
