Well paying jobs

Posted by ESC on January 24, 2010 at 15:32

The American Petroleum Institute (API) has a series of television ads where the spokesperson talks about "well paying jobs." See http://www.api.org/aboutapi/ads/ To my ear that phrase sounds incorrect. "Good paying jobs" sounds correct. Recently U.S. President Obama used "well paying jobs" in a televised speech. Anyone have any comments?
