I feel like a bachelor's degree in a competitive field pretty much guarantees a "middle class job".  Do you agree or disagree?

Since, there's lots of jobs that says they'll hire you have a bachelor's degree in a technical field. If you google the job 'Analyst' in the U.S. there's about 50,000 that show up that say:

"-College degree or equivalent experience working in insurance, project management, or technology"

-0 to 2 years of experience"

    Very much disagree.  While there are some jobs like that, there are not enough of them for every with a degree.  Many college graduates have to take jobs that don't require degrees, because there aren't enough jobs requiring degrees for everyone with a degree.

    It's gotten to the point that electricians, auto mechanics, etc., make more than workers in jobs that require degrees.

    depends on the study.  there are high demand degrees that companies will pay more for.  and some fields will require a degree and experience, this is where internships come in.  if you have those, that could put you at a higher pay grade than just a bachelor's degree alone.

    College degrees give you options.  What you do in the 5-10 years out of school will determine what type of career you have 20 years from graduating.  You have to work for what you want.  Your question seems extremely odd and flawed, quite frankly.

    A degree, even one of the higher ones, will never guarantee you a job.

    But not having one generally leads to a more limited career or casual work.
