There's no shortage of engineers. Just a shortage of cheap engineers. We don't need H1Bs or Green Card holders. When salaries re-adjust to their correct levels, students will be attracted to the field filling any shortage.

I've harped on this before, but if there are a shortage of engineers, why not revamp the green card program to make it easier permanently bring in engineers? What do we need H-1B for? Why not encourage a 'brain gain' into the US, rather than a 'brain drain' out of the US? A temporary visa taps the so call 'global sources of information', then trains them in US knowledge and methods, then ships them back out of the country so they can form competing companies. I use a revamped green card program as a listhmus test for executives. If they push H-1B over an improved green card program, then you know all their talk about a shortage of engineers is a BS cover for their real agenda.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
