A recent report claiming there are enough qualified Americans to work in the tech industry without expanding current work visa programs, has drawn criticism.
On Wednesday the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) issued a report that undermined arguments proffered by the technology industry for additional guest workers to meet industry demand.
The EPI argued its data shows there are more than enough workers in the U.S. with the appropriate STEM - science, technology, engineering and math - skills to fill the worker shortage. Those workers are just being displaced by the lower salaries of guest workers, the report says.
But the tech industry is calling the report's findings flawed.
