Skilled Immigrants Under Employed

World Journal, News report, Posted: Oct 25, 2008

NEW YORK The Migration Policy Institute published a report Wednesday, showing that 20 percent of technical workers in this country have to do non-technical work because of language barriers, immigration status and certificate issues. The World Journal describes the situation as a huge brain waste. The report shows that in 2006 of the 6.1 million immigrants who had higher education in foreign countries before moving to the United States, 1.3 million worked as cab drivers, waiters and safety personnel. The report urges the government to adjust its immigration policy in order to keep people with ability, since Canada and Europe are strategically drawing technical workers from around the world.
