If everyone has a Bachelor’s degree, does it really matter if you have one or not? Research shows that people with a basic undergraduate degree make significantly more money over their lifetime than those with no post-secondary. Degree holders historically do better in periods of recession, facing lower unemployment rates than non-degree holders. Although having a bachelor’s degree will not guarantee you a job, having a degree will certainly help you find one, and ensure you get paid more.
