Absolutely not. I had a good friend in school who after graduation started working at a mom and pop auto repair place. He was then hired by a dealership that sold Audi. The only one in the area. He bacame their premier (so the region's top) Audi mechanic. Later he went to work as the maintenance manager at another dealership. No he's the GM for one of that dealership's franchises. I have 5 years of higher education and his pay kicks the hell out of mine.
That said...it USUALLY helps. Not always, but usually.

It really depends on what field you want to go into... however more and more companies want to see that Piece of paper - some writing jobs online demand you have a degree. What is unfortunate is the amount of people that DO HAVE expensive degrees and can't get work in their fields and end up doing menial jobs just to make ends meet!

If you are just talking about money then there are many other ways to make money than going to college though on average, a person with a college degree earns more than one without. I think the best reason to go to college is simply because you want to learn that subject in which you are interested. I certainly didn't earn all of these degrees in psychology to get rich. I make less than most people I know but I am likely happier in my work than most people I know. I suppose it is a matter of preferences and what tradeoffs you are willing to make.
