...for my own records if nothing else.
- Washington Post - good summary, with a focus on the shortage argument
- Slate (Matt Yglesias) - focus on shortage argument - a counter-argument that STEM guestworkers are good anyway but no attempt to explain why we should be uniquely happy to have STEM workers such that we'd give them a special visa
- Philadelphia Inquirer - a more labor protectionist take on the report, with special considerations about New Jersey
- Science Careers (here and here) - by one of the best science job market journalists around
- WSJ Real Time Economics blog - focuses on a causal link between stagnant wages and guestworkers that I don't think we make, but is probably right
- Innovation Trail.org
-The Business Journal - on the opposition, with particular reference to the new computer science jobs estimated by the BLS. Generally I don't put much stock in these forecasts, but we ought to write up something on that.
- Science Insider hits the point that Ross Eisenbrey (VP of EPI) likes to emphasize about crowding out of domestic students from STEM.
- Huffington Post
- The Register
- Two posts on the Demos blog. This one is supportive. This one has a really odd criticism which verges on accusing us of not doing due diligence methodologically that I address in the comment thread.
- My favorite so far, from Carney at CNBC - highlighted in the next post.
