I’m glad this doesn’t comport with your personal experience. But that doesn’t change the fact that there is zero evidence of a STEM labor shortage and, hence, pressure to keep wages competitive.
Michael Titlebaum — a senior research associate at Harvard Law and former Rhodes Scholar — has written convincingly about the myth of the lucrative STEM career. Here he is in a recent article: “Far from offering expanding attractive career opportunities, it seems that many, but not all, science and engineering careers are headed in the opposite direction: unstable careers, slow-growing wages, and high risk of jobs moving offshore or being filled by temporary workers from abroad.”
Also, and I mean this 100% sincerely with no snark intended, into what careers do you think people should move?
