re: NSF: U.S. losing ground as more R&D jobs head overseas

Many of the posts below seem to focus on bashing India & China (notice that some how Japan & S. Korea were spared!) and their industrial espionage, etc... But they completely miss the fact that these countries DID invest some serious money in R&D, much more in China in comparison to others. And they IMPROVED their education system! These efforts do deserve some credit... whereas it is easy to critisize their service economy models for overseas opportunities with cheap(?) labour, etc. But seriously, the latter has a lot to do with corporate greed than anything else!

Infosys senior level meetings:

"We will dump 6 million Indians in US and capture their entire IT market and no American will ever come to know about this. We will throw these Americans out of their own country. They don't know what we are doing over here."

Most of these foreign workers are, in fact, industrial spies. 15 years ago, before all this started India and China couldn't compete at all with the US in science and tech. 15 years ago the US was the undisputed leader. Now we're losing competitiveness? I thought all those foreign workers we've been importing for 15 years were going to help keep us competitve?

You mean they didn't?

You mean they stole our tech instead?

And American workers SPEND their $ here - into the US economy. Foreign workers send their $ back to their home countries via remittances.

Non-resident Indians in the US currently send over $65 billion US dollars out of the US every year back to India.

And we wonder why we have a recession.

We need to keep our own people employed, not build other countries for them.

They don't want you because USA has been importing foreign workers for the past 15 years and all you have done is wrecked the US economy.

RWNZ, do the U.S. companies that have bothered to reply to you say you must get a high-tech, or H-1B, visa to work in the U.S? Some other visa category? U.S. companies frequently complain that they can't find employees with the skill sets they seek. Seems like a U.S. company would therefore be willing to handle the paperwork and cover the visa costs if your qualifications were what they are looking for.

"a top tier management firm that cannot find skilled Americans even in this bad economy" Please list the necessary qualifications and salary range. Could it be that your firm cannot find skilled Americans willing to work for the salary your firm is offering? Could it be that your firm is unwilling to offer a bit of training to new employees?

I am a New Zealand, married with two children. I have just completed my PhD in physics (NMR). I would like to move to the US. I have found that US companies generally do not reply to my emails, they have websites with application forms that look like they were designed in the 1990s (Haliburton), they even require you to post your CV !!! in a real paper envelope (Philips) which I did. Once a company does start talking to you, the requirements to get into the US are a sticking point. They point out the paperwork and costs involved. By contrast, Australia and Europe are much better. They reply. Their websites are generally better in my experience. Conclusion: the US is making it hard for the US to employ highly educated people. http://www.robward.co.nz/cv-resume/

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
