walterbyrd writes “Dr. Norman Matloff of the University of California-Davis computer science department argues that US citizens are avoiding ‘Science Technology Engineering Math’ (STEM) careers, because US citizens see those fields as being ruined by massive offshoring and inshoring. ‘Despite widely publicized claims that foreign tech workers and scientists represent exceptional ability and are thus vital to American innovation, Matloff called that argument merely “a good sound byte for lobbyists” supporting industry proposals for higher visa caps. The data (PDF), on the other hand, indicate that those admitted are no more able, productive, or innovative than America’s homegrown talent, he said.’”
