What STEM Shortage?

We’ve been hearing for years that the only way America can stay ‘competitive’ is to admit hordes of foreign engineers to supplement our inadequate supply of homegrown STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) workers. The constant influx of these workers on H-1B visas has kept wages in these fields from rising for many years now.

But is there really such a shortage? We have an awful lot of people here already, after all, and until fairly recently America managed to dominate these fields for a very long time, and to lead the world in technical and scientific innovation, without having to flood the STEM labor pool with imported workers.

The whole thing may be a sham, or perhaps I should say a scam. Learn more here.
