Maybe they are just trying to dissuade the many unemployed or want to use it as a basis for rejecting those that the hiring team may have a bias
If you didn't have a degree and, for instance, you had something about you, perhaps race, looks, disability etc... then management simply points out
the requirement and shows you the door. If you don't have the degree but have managed to communicate yourself to the interviewers in a positive
light, perhaps they mention the degree and the fact that they may be willing to waive that because you seem like a good fit in all other respects.
To me, this is a way to keep the really down and out from ever getting up, not giving them a chance, while catering to the kids who put the effort in
to get through college and now find themsleves in a pinch.
Could there be a widening class split occurring at the bottom end as well? It is posible that the posters of this ad (maybe McDonalds, maybe an
independent operator of a McDonalds) have been burnt too many times in the past with the people that need to book interviews and have a contact to
list on their unemployment forms that they have concentrated on trying to attract people who may just be dedicated enough to paying back thier student
loan obligations that they will stick around longer once given an opportunity. Folks that you don't need to constantly train and fire are probably
like gold to them.
