WHERE CAN WE PUT SKILLED WORKERS TO WORK?

When advanced skilled workers are sitting on the sidelines, America is losing its tax base as well as its leadership positions in cutting-edge and emerging technologies.

Although many in the media are only finding out about this now, skilled and advanced degreed workers are not finding jobs that take advantage of their skill sets.  There is a lot of talent sitting on the sidelines while companies continue to bring in cheap skilled labor through Visa programs claiming there is shortage when there isn't.

America has always been on the cutting-edge of emerging technologies and has created new and broad-based industry segments as those technologies grow.

The big question becomes, "Where is the next big job surge?" because many who have a lot of diversified talent are not finding work.  It's not just those coming off of the Space Program, it is everyone in many high-tech and software development areas.

Shovel-ready projects did not work in the initial TARP projects because the segment looking for work was more in the technology and engineering fields.   Maybe shovel-ready should have been keyboard-ready to have made a real impact on the economy.
