Default Only 7% !!!!?????

believe that American companies are telling the truth when they claim there is a lack of qualified talent in the U.S. for the high tech industry?

Even though the disclaimer says unscientific poll, this is outrageously biased.

Please forward to all hi tech companies. Let it come from the horses mouth.

Default Take this poll with a pinch of salt

Dont worry about it guys........

Every American who owns an IPOD and can surf the web thinks that he is hi-tech....

Americans still expect six figues salaries after high school educaiton....

My boss has been trying to hire a couple of EEs since the past couple of months but is not successful.....Ultimately he had to request me to find Indians graduating in the coming fall semester from the local university....

Also the poll shoule be structured as "Do you think American school system is not producing enough skilled workers with knowledge in STEM fields?"

'High tech jobs' and 'qualified workers' are all distractive terms for the larger malice in place: Americans taking for granted that jobs will be lined for them when they step out of college.

As a matter of fact Mr. Lou Dobbs is doing a big disservice to the American people by lying and not encounraging them to face the harsh truth that there is a lot of competition out there and please be prepared to face it.

This poll results is from his viewers who are already biased against any sought of immigration. And to add this is not a scientific poll. Plus no one cares about his polls

Default The Problem of “Over Qualifying”

I think there is some truth to this poll.

A lot of Americans lost their jobs to foreigners because they are over qualified for those jobs.

Well, when you buy tools for yourself, you buy the cheaper ones that have all the functions that you need, not the most expensive ones that have all the functions, including the functions that you don’t need. The same thing happens to people as it does to tools.

I think most people will become overqualified at some point in their life. The best thing to do after you have become over qualified is to start your own business in the field that you are over qualified for. With the experience you have in that field, you will have better chance of success. If you don’t want to run a business, try investment. With the money you have earned earlier in your life, you should be able to do some investment. If you have invested in real estate, try to make money from the real estate you own.

One should take responsibility for oneself. The government can only take care of the citizens to certain point. Mothers can only breast feed their babies to certain time, and parents can only take care of their children until they are 18. Parents can not take care of you all your life. So don’t expect the government to take care of you all your life, either.

I am writing this here because a lot of us will have this problem in our life later on.

There are 22,965 IV members. Won't it be good if everyone casts his/her vote. The result would be dramatically different.

Default Lou Dobbs:money making strategy

Just take it easy on this guy. He is a hard nosed, narcistic, self proclaimed immigration reforming CNN anchor who made millions just by talking and writing books on Immigration issues. There is some truth in his talk show but most of it is fabricated lie exaggerated by the media.

I really pity him because he has to come up with some immigration news everyday to save his job unlike Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitz.
But as long as the immigration community, who has time and again proved its extra ordinary skills by getting Nobels, Pulitzers, Outstanding physician awards, humanitarian awards, he can't change a bit of law. The corporate america wants brain and skills, and we have them. We will prevail......

Just change the TV channel

Prashant --- lol now that's scientific

prince_waiting: I couldn't agree with you more. Rather than fixing the problem this poll covers up the harsh truth that most American's are not upto the jobs that it's own society demands. Most people think that H1B candidates are brought in as cheap labor. Which is not the case, we all know that we get paid the same as any American in the same field, if not higher.

Mr. Dobbs has shot himself in the foot, yet once again.

You will waste your time if you vote in Lou Dobbs polls. His pools are rigged. These polls start in the loo as they begin by giving 100,000 votes to his ideological point of view and 0 votes in support of the opposite view. Hence the disclaimer to the pools. I suggest that we simply ignore him and don't participate in his pool. It would be one less human being giving Lou Dobbs no value, making him inconsequential one person at a time.

As illusions said, Lou has shot himself in the foot once again. Pehaps Lou should come out of his illusion and see the real world before he confuses his eye for his foot.
