: The American Petroleum Institute (API) has a series of television ads where the spokesperson talks about "well paying jobs." See 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?

Neither sounds quite right to me. I would say 'well-paid jobs'.
