Would you get your degree if it was free?

My prior employer paid for me to get an associates degree and for most of my bachelor's degree. It was a hard and long fought journey, but I did it. But just because it's free, would you do it?
Target is offering to pay for higher education which is awesome.

Your time isn't free. And 4 years it a long time to waste. What you need for a job isn't taught in the classroom

if it was free, yes. I think people with a degree get paid a lot more.

I would get my degree, and use what I learned to open my own business and becomes successful, just because you have a degree, there might not be that many or any jobs in that field because of all of the people that lost jobs, they might just give it to them just to fill the position and you worked hard to get your degree. Just always have a backup plan when you are considering things like this.

Yes I would. I longed to be a CNA. Had to highest gpa. But couldn't pass the certification test. This hurts still.

You know, actually, right now in our "economic mess" a degree means so much less than it did. In many areas construction, common laborers, even fast food workers jobs are easier to get with decent pay and now with benefits never seen before. Why? Desperation!! Degrees mean so much less and then add student debt...Wow! I know it's crazy. ..

The one thing that a degree says to anyone contemplating hiring you is that you have significant experience putting up with bullshit.
