Probably a NASSCOM paid PR piece in the Houston Business Journal.
As they have been saying for the past 20 years, the sky is falling, if we don’t flood the labor market with millions more foreign workers, America will collapse, etc.
Well we’ve been doing that for 21 years and look at the mess America is in. Foreign powers, namely India and China are manipulating US public opinion in order to keep the flow of cheap labor industrial spies coming into America.
India + China are over there laughing at how dumb Americans are to buy this crap.
There is no skills gap. Americans built Silicon Valley long before Asian looters arrived.
Articles like these are pure propaganda.
Any foreign entity who hires a US PR firm to pump these lies should be required to disclose that fact under the US Foreign Agents Registration Act so the people can know who the source of these articles is and what their agenda is.
Of course the article is written by a Deloitte employee citing a Deloitte study. Deloitte, as you may know is an outsourcer that makes huge profits off labor arbitrage by flooding the US labor market with millions of cheap foreign workers, mostly from India. Deloitte’s CEO is Indian, and Deloitte has already signed agreements to loot US companies such as Apple, which were built by Americans.
Pure propaganda – since without an actual shortage of skilled Americans, it is illegal to bring any foreign workers into the US to work. Deloitte’s PR dept. has to keep the lies rolling in order to keep their business model going.
There is no shortage, their “study” is propaganda, and Americans built Silicon Valley.
These scum labor arbitrage companies need to be stopped since they are violating US immigration laws, and adversely affecting American workers, which is illegal under Title 8 of US law.
Workforce of the future: Now’s the time to start closing the skills gap
“By Amy Chronis – Houston Managing Partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP Mar 28, 2019
Economists have a warning about the future of the workforce. Texas — along with many other states — could miss out on opportunities because too many people don’t have the skills that a growing number of jobs require. Starting in 2018 and extending to 2028, there will be 4.6 million U.S. manufacturing jobs to fill, according to a study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute. The skills gap may leave an estimated 2.4 million positions vacant during that 10-year period”.
Nonsense. We already have way more unemployed skilled workers than we have jobs.
She must mean “economists” like illegal wage-fixer Alan Greenspan who really hates when American workers are paid a lot:
