This sentence came up in one of the videos of a popular English teacher on youtube.
Just because you don't have a degree shouldn't make a difference.
My question is, is this correct? Can the phrase 'Just because you don't have a degree' be a subject in a sentence? I would have no problems with 'You not having a degree shouldn't make a difference.', or 'Whether you have a degree or not should not make a difference.', but I have doubts about the original sentence.
