24. I don't have the source right at hand.

 

The source of 50% of recent college grads being unable to find employment has been broadcast all over the news during the past several years. The story about disenfranchised US STEM workers being unable to find jobs is a well known fact supported by news of rampant and brazen age discrimination in Silicon Valley and the rest of the country.

The case for recent college grads being unable to find jobs in the future is speculation on my part because there is not one political party, Democratic or Republican, who is doing a thing about finding jobs for recent college grads. Both parties are focused on flooding the workplace with workers on all sorts of work visas. Plus, now they want more work visas!

The narrative being pushed by the politicians of both parties is that there is only 85,000 H-1B visas being printed up each year, when in fact the true number of H-1B visas is around 150,000. That does not include the 100,000 OPT visas, or the 75,000 L1 visas, or the hundreds of thousands of B1 visas that are being improperly used to bring workers into this country. The true number of work visas being granted EACH YEAR that undermines the jobs of US STEM workers and recent college grads is somewhere between 300,000 and 500,000, EACH YEAR.

The careers of US STEM workers is being devastated, but nary a politician cares, neither Republican nor Democrat.
