To say that the recent article in IEEE Spectrum, The STEM Crisis Is a Myth, has caused some controversy is a classic understatement. But is it wrong?
My personal experience is that it isn’t. Rather than too few job seekers there are far too many for the available jobs and many technical people are underemployed, hanging on to jobs just to stay working. But others may have different opinions and the IEEE is keeping the conversation going for the month of September.
