That’s because Americans know they’re never going to get hired in STEM even with a PhD because the entire industry has been flooded by cheap foreign labor.

No American student is going to go into $100K of debt for an advanced degree that will only get him a job at Walmart.

It’s not because they’re not smart enough – it’s because they know they will be punished for taking that path.

Silicon Valley, BTW, was created by hippie college dropouts.
