Yes, that is why you would want at least some political leverage. The only way around that I can see is to sue against requiring college degrees (without looking for a major in a specific area) as discriminatory based on disparate impact. Then offer in settlement a consent decree where a group of employers agreeing to accept a "college equivalency" certification test on an equal footing with a college degree.

The problem that any "college equivalency" certification test that actually tested for something resembling ability would have even worse disparate impact then college degrees.

Yes it would. But I've heard stories about consent decrees where sometimes once both parties and a judge agree on a settlement it can be tricky to go back and re-argue the case
