On a personal level yes.  Financially the question is harder to show.  You do make more according to this graphic, but with interest levels, uncertain job future like the present, it is not an automatic yes.  What is more interesting is that people with degrees often have problems getting jobs due to being “overqualified”.  Sometimes the perception is that smart people can intimidate others, or they may not have adequate social skills and prefer facts over people.
