re: H-1B At Center Of Immigration Reform Debate
The IEEE and IEEE-USA likes to claim to represent US STEM workers when in fact they don't! The IEEE-USA has 206,000 members which may sound like a lot until you realize that they are a minute part of the overall 15.7 million college grads in the US with STEM related degrees.

Not only are the members of the IEEE/IEEE-USA a small part of the overall STEM workforce, membership in the IEEE/IEEE-USA disproportionally represent academia, college professors and their foreign grad students. US students have virtually abandoned graduate schools because the prospects of employment by those receiving graduate degrees is pathetic, and the education is expensive in addition to being worthless. The only students who choose to attend US graduate schools are foreign students for the purpose of getting a visa. Our schools are turning into visa mills.

The IEEE/IEEE-USA support unlimited green cards for grads of grad schools is for self preservation. Unless more foreign grad students are allowed to displace more US workers, the jobs of the IEEE/IEEE-USA membership are in jeopardy. Just like the other parties that benefit from discarding US STEM workers, the IEEE/IEEE-USA is part of the same gravy train.
