Here are some interesting little tidbits from associations of American Professionals and in-particular, engineers, who find that "In part because of the large numbers of YSN [ Young Scientists' Network ] members in the US, one issue that has been discussed in great depth in YSND is the manner in which US Immigration Law affects US born Scientists and Engineers. One thing which has become clear from these discussions is that the system is flawed. Legislators operating under the assumption of "The Myth," [ espoused by official government agencies (among them, the US National Science Foundation) that a looming shortage of PhD Scientists and Engineers was imminent, ] and often encouraged to do so by corporate lobbyists, have promoted the immigration of specialists in fields in which there already exists a gross US oversupply. This situation is detrimental both to scientists and engineers already in the US who may be unable to find employment, and to the immigrant scientists and engineers who are often paid substandard wages. Clearly the system is flawed and it is in the interest of everyone involved to change it."
