Interesting, but I do know of a gentleman who had a PhD in plant pathology.
He wanted to have a simple outside laborer/day job in arborcare to fill in
time while waiting for his wife to finish up her medical degree. When he
applied to several tree cutting/maintenance services, the business owners
apparently were threatened by his PhD degree, said he was overqualified, and
did not hire him. After that, he left his PhD information off job
applications, was hired, and later formed his own highly successful
profitable arborcare business. Maybe in some ways, he had sweet revenge as
competition to "threatened" scaredy cats.

Don't think anyone ever was turned down for a job because they had a PhD
but many have who haven't.
