High Tech College Grad Statistics

Myth:
American Colleges and Universities are not creating enough High-tech graduates.

Truth:
This argument is often used by those supporting H-1B.  The truth is in the real numbers.

Clearly, this argument does not add-up.  American Colleges and Universities ARE creating enough High-tech graduates.  Interestingly, companies reported that they would be hiring 25-30% fewer college graduates in 2002.  New H-1B applications however, were at an all-time high in 2002…  If you also count the number of H-1B workers imported, but did not count toward the quota, there were 382,000 new H-1B workers in 2002.
