The new labor market: No bachelor’s required? — from by Lawrence Lanahan
More workers without degrees are landing jobs they’d have been shut out of before. Will it last?


Thanks to a tight labor market, more good jobs are opening up to workers who lack a bachelor’s degree. A month after Maryland’s announcement, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis directed government agencies in his state to embrace hiring workers for skills, not degrees. Private sector employers have been rolling back B.A. requirements too.
