Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Thank you H1-B's.
And that's why STEM is not a real jackpot either. Even engineering sucks. Plus, you have to compete with all the damn Ranjeevs and Lo Weis cuz you know, cororatism Amerika just can't findz those skillz Americans with STEM degrees. And those damn 'Muricans want stuff like health insurance, sicke leave, and vacation time.
As I have observed for the last 20 years in the IT industry -- Its not that the demand is not there, just not at the price point the corps are willing to pay. Corollary -- Corps today think that a STEM degree from Univ of Delhi is equivalent to one from say Drexel Univ. or Northwestern Univ. but they are not. Seen way too many East Asians who profess to have great skills that don't know a damn thing. Like bad money driving out good; bad educational delivery is driving out the good.
