      To be fair, I suspect that some of these jobs never needed a 4 year (or likely 2 year) degree, jobs such as housekeeper, barista, lumber associate, etc. The company I used to work at required a 4 year degree for office workers. They didn't use the terms "clerk" or "secretary", but that would have been the traditional titles for these positions. They could never fill the positions.

      A step in the right direction I think. A degree is one way to credentials, it shouldn't be the only way.
