The Opportunity Occupations Monitor from Rework America Alliance member the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, displays opportunity employment and its prevalence across labor markets. Opportunity employment is an estimate of the number and share of jobs accessible to workers without a bachelor’s degree that pay more than the national median wage ($45,760 in 2021). The national median wage is based on estimates from the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics survey.
The darker blue areas on the map represent places with a higher proportion of opportunity employment and therefore a better chance that a worker with less than a bachelor’s degree earns a livable wage. You can use the tool to view:
