This is just not true.  Most companies who actually hire workers and pay
salaries want certified people.

One can certainly get a job without a certification and it does not mean
that the person who has a certification is the best thing since sliced
bread ... however, it certainly proves that the person with the
certification has a certain set of minimal qualifications.

In other words, it does not raise the ceiling (or high water mark or
maximum) for knowledge level, but it certainly raises the floor (or low
water mark or minimum) knowledge that you know the person has.

It also shows that they are at least a little concerned about what they
look like professionally.

In my experience, people who complain about how little certifications
mean don't have any and are too lazy to care about getting any ... your
mileage may vary.
