54. How about the 50% of recent college grads who cannot find a job because of the deluge ...HUH?

I do not think the recent grad = the disenfranchised US STEM workers

Seems like most STEM areas have employment for those with CURRENT-qualifications.
However , If you do not keep up on training and current certs needed well yes you will become disenfranchised.
Grads will often work for well below what some seasoned H1B will take simply because they do not have experience.
I think it is mostly older workers who did not keep up or wouldn't train unless on company time.

Many of these positions could find a way to be done remotely in the future anyway if we don't step up as a nation and provide education not school as a profit maker. Corps will move on without the US disenfranchised one way or another

An historic report linking student interest in STEM education with STEM job opportunities is released Thursday, January 14, 2013. The new report — Where are the STEM Students? What are their Career Interests? Where are the STEM Jobs? — identifies the STEM interests of more than one million U.S. high school students interested in pursuing STEM careers, and links them to increasing demand for over 16 million STEM jobs by 2018

. The report is also designed to motivate students interested in STEM careers by providing a breakdown of “hot” STEM jobs, salary figures, and a projection of the future STEM job market.

“STEM jobs are among the highest paying and fastest growing in the United States, we must know where the jobs are, and excite and encourage students to pursue STEM degrees and careers, armed with skill sets to fill and grow where the jobs are.”

Really ? I think so but then I am not a hater looking for a muddle of statistics to satisfy my slant or bummed because I did the same thing for 10 years and darn it progress shouldn't make me change! Sorry but that is who I have seen spout this stuff and maybe I am wrong but new students in STEM at 50% unemployed - really?
Also hate the student overseas who sees an opportunity to be filled and studies and gets certs to qualify? Really? That is the American Way? Obama can not talk of immigrants -esp. high qualified ones? Really?
If anything then blame the corps on this soil that hire and would not give a dime or time to re- ed imo.
