I'd choose a guy without a degree to run my equipment--most college guys are not so saavy when it comes to sweat equity--
Though, there are some real workers out there that have college degrees--

a guy that KNOWS how to work hard doing manual labor, it doesn't bother him and also has a college degree?...its hard for me to see how much I can offer him until my business grows to a 5 or 6 truck operation (or he has a license of some sort doing more complex work than mowing grass )and he would be more useful selling, running the entire operation, not sweating behind a mower--I'd wonder why he didn't go out on his own....
