Bound says US tech industry's claim that it has a shortage of qualified American workers is "hype"

a PSC In The News reference

"In Trump era, tech visas get a hard look" - Boston Globe. 04/03/2017.

This article looks at arguments made by the US tech industry that it faces a shortage of qualified American workers and so must hire thousands of international guest workers using the federal H-1B visa program. John Bound is skeptical of this argument, saying that "the notion that there just aren’t enough decently qualified people in the US, and that’s why you have to go overseas, I think is hype.”
