STEM: Shortage of workers is a myth

STEM: Shortage of workers is a myth | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Silicon Valley has created an imaginary staffing shortage.


"As longtime researchers of the STEM workforce and immigration who have separately done in-depth analyses on these issues, and having no self-interest in the outcomes of the legislative debate, we feel compelled to report that none of us has been able to find any credible evidence to support the IT industry's assertions of labor shortages."

Brian Altonen's curator insight, July 28, 2014 9:37 AM

The Big 10 . . . .   

 

Ebola    

MERS    

Bubonic Plague    

H7N9 Avian Flu    

HIV/AIDS    

Polio*   

Viral hepatitis    

Measles**    

Meningitis    

Cholera     

   

*Endnote:  I received a lot of criticism for pointing this one out a half year ago.  Until its re-eruption.    


**It is my opinion that we depended too much on the HERD THEORY (Hypothesis?) these past decades, using it the explain how and why we effectively prevented Measles outbreaks in developed countries like the U.S.  HERD Theory is only valid for "herds" that lack unusual in- and out-migration patterns--such is no longer the case for most of the developed countries.
