STEM Graduates Can’t Find Jobs


Chris reblogged this on —KnoGimmicks.com™— Digital News and commented:


Outsourcing— Death of the "American Dream"

The continuous outsourcing of STEM jobs and the promotion of education without occupation is killing this country. Then with companies making false reports or false claims in order to lower wages— recruiting cheap talent, it's making it even harder for natives of the U.S. to survive. The education system and American infrastructure is at great risk right now. With wars continuing to go on and with corporate organizations putting the steering while in the government's back, young STEM graduates are being left with a short stick. That's why, more than ever, it's time to start injecting more entrepreneurial-curriculum based education into our system. At least if it's not being taught in school, parents should have awareness of the future job market for their children and help their kids discover financial independence through entrepreneurship— rather if it may be engineering entrepreneurship or some type of STEM entrepreneurship. Fact of the matter is, this is what the future generation has been set up for. More technology, more automation, fewer resources, tighter budgets and more bootstrapping.

Domestic STEM graduates can't finding jobs.

U.S. News: STEM graduates are at a loss— Cries that “the STEM sky is falling” are just the latest in a cyclical pattern of shortage predictions over the past half-century, none of which were even remotely accurate. In a desert of evidence, the growth of STEM shortage claims is driven by heavy industry funding for lobbyists and think tanks. Their goal is government intervention in the market under the guise of solving national economic problems. The highly profitable IT industry, for example, is devoting millions to convince Congress and the White House to provide its employers with more low-cost, foreign guestworkers instead of trying to attract and retain employees from an ample domestic labor pool of native and immigrant citizens and permanent residents. Guestworkers currently make up two-thirds of all new IT hires, but employers are demanding further increases. If such lobbying efforts succeed, firms will have enough guest-workers for at least 100 percent of their new hiring and can continue to legally substitute these younger workers for current employees, holding down wages for both them and new hires.

For Fun

A small victory (or two?)

In one of my recent posts I wrote about certain things bothering me and that I don’t know what to do.
One of those things is the messed up situation being without a job or any form of income or benefits. 1,206 more words
