This is really good news because it gives talented people that may not have the degree requirements for a job a chance at the job.

Many of the people that have degrees, don't have the skill to do the actual job. Many, many years ago, they used to hire people based on skill and aptitude rather than credentials. It would be nice to see it go back to that.

I bet a lot of people that are paying off their huge student loans will not be happy about this, I'm sure.

The problem as I see it is the destruction of the training culture. Companies used to train employees. Now they don't. Under the old system, a larger pool of people were potentially suitable. Now you need the exact pieces of paper.

Since the pandemic has stifled the use of foreign labor due to high unemployment and because of the America First agenda that Trump put in place, companies will have to go back to training talented workers that don't have the exact pieces of paper. There is no way for any company to justify using Visa people with so many Americans out of work.

I really hope that this initiative will stay in place even after the economy improves. So many degrees today are worthless anyway.
