THE REAL STORY ON GUESTWORKERS IN THE HIGH-SKILL U.S. LABOUR MARKET

itif_logoRecently, the Economic Policy Institute in the USA issued a report claiming that there is no shortage of U.S. STEM workers (with education in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) and that increases in high-skill immigration are not needed and detrimental to the U.S. economy.

In a counter report, ITIF (Information Technology & Innovation Foundation)
presents a detailed rebuttal of the EPI analysis to provide a more accurate
picture of the high skill labor market. It finds that the EPI report’s
conclusions are simply not supported by the evidence. In fact, the U.S. does not
produce enough STEM workers domestically, STEM wages and jobs have grown
significantly over the last decade, and high-skill guestworkers are a
complement, not a substitute, to American high-skill labour.
