US to Hire L-1 and H-1B Visa Holders for STEM Jobs

US to Hire L-1 and H-1B Visa Holders for STEM Jobs
The Third annual US News or Raytheon STEM Index reports that the US will hire immigrants on L-1B visa and H-1B visa for positions in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The index, released on May 17, 2016, reveals that skills gaps still exist which will be filled by STEM graduates who are on H-1B visas and L-1B visas. 

According to this Index, there was an increase in the number of STEM degrees and hires. However, the number of domestic STEM workers does not meet the required quantity. 

Editor of US News, Brian Kelly, expressed, "Despite significant public and private investment, we are still not developing an American STEM workforce to fill the jobs of the future. It's clear that we need to focus our efforts on getting more kids, particularly women and African-Americans, interested in pursuing STEM at a young age.”

The findings of this index included the following:

There was a six percent rise in STEM graduate degrees in 2016 and 5 percent increase in STEM degrees overall.

STEM jobs employment rose to 28 percent since 2000, while the other jobs had  only six percent.

IT-related jobs fall in the top seven categories preferred by most of the aspirant employees.

3 out of 5 highest-paying STEM salaries are IT-related. Information Systems Managers who earn $141,000 per annum, Computer Research Scientists’ salaries go up to $115,580, and Computer Hardware Engineers’ package is $114,970.
