The Shrinking Talent Pool in US Technology Companies


Shrinking talent pool in the US Tech companies: The immigration ban is not only effecting people traveling from the 6 countries to the US but is having serious negative ramifications about the culture we are creating and representing to the world. I was at the top technical university in Germany last week and met with 50 of their brightest Ph.D. students in CS and mathematics. None of them expressed an interest to join industry in the US- when asked what their reasons were, all uniformly stated that they did not want to be part of a culture that alienates immigrants. Germany has taken over 900,000 refugees-showing a great sense of compassion which people see that we are lacking in the US.
