Awh…yes! That happened to us when we worked at the college. They required all lower-level administrative positions to have at least a 4 year degree. They paid for (comp’d) the first 2 years and then employees were forced to cover the last 2. No one was guaranteed a pay increase or promotion. In fact, they did not receive a raise or promotion. People were angry — and incurred lots of debt to keep a job barely paying $27k annually. Because we lived in a really rural area, the college was the second largest employer next to the regional hospital. The “thought process” was that if they get more degreed professionals it would attract more industry to our area. That didn’t happen either.
