On Thursday, the New American Economy (NAE) released a report documenting that the U.S. does not have enough high-skilled workers to meet demand for computer-related jobs, and employers are seeking immigrant talent to help fill that gap. A bipartisan immigration research group found that for every unemployed computer or math worker in the country in 2020, there were more than seven job postings for computer-related occupations. Andrew Lim, director of quantitative research at NAE, said that “the evidence in this report is really adding more support to the idea that there are still needs from employers in the United States for computer-related workers that are not being addressed by current immigration policy.”
