Fax your three Members of Congress and help debunk faulty paper about STEM

 An interesting article from about the STEM unemployment crisis. This follows this post about American workers.This follows this post about the TPP. This follows this post about drought and immigration. This follows this post on HOW amnesty is funded in ways other than the DHS. Remember, “Amnesty” means ANY non-enforcement of existing immigration laws! This follows this comment and this post about how to Report Illegal Immigrants! Also, you can read two very interesting books HERE.
Please follow me here.

Dear activist,
A new paper published by the government's Bureau of Labor Statistics entitled, "STEM Crisis or STEM Surplus? Yes and yes," would lead many to believe that the tech industry is understaffed and needs more foreign workers.
However, the report ignores several key details and is based on incomplete sources.
One of the paper's authors works for one of the biggest users of H-1B visas, Palantir. In addition, the main source of information for the paper is interviews with 18 tech recruiters who say they struggle to find qualified talent, but the paper fails to mention that recruiters are often bound by a company's hiring restrictions such as age or years of experience making it more difficult to find applicants.
You can read the flawed report here.
Fax Congress
Please send a fax to your three Members of Congress addressing the paper's flaws and help to combat the push by the tech industry to increase H-1B numbers.
If you are indeed a worker in a STEM field, we encourage you to add your own message to the body of the fax or the postscript.
