Regression analysis Wages and Wage Earners Data Set

Please see attachment and help me explain the regression analysis and scatter plot.

I ran this regression analysis. My hypothesis is that there is a positive linear relationship between years of education and salary. I used the following data set for this. (see attachment) Table 1: Wages and Wage Earners Data Set

I NEED to be able to explain the analysis in simple words. I believe that it shows a positive linear relationship. Also help me explain the scatter plot below (see attachment).
