Submission + - Foreigners Don't Take IT Jobs, They Create Them (informationweek.com) 1

gManZboy writes: "Might the Occupy Wall Street protests pressure U.S.-based companies to keep IT and other jobs in this country or face a backlash? One commonly espoused view is that if we keep more foreigners out of the U.S., employment will rise and the economy will rebound. "While I understand the deep frustrations and fear that accompany 9%-plus national unemployment, I'm not buying this line of reasoning," writes InformationWeek Editor-in-Chief Rob Preston. Evidence shows that highly educated tech pros who come to the U.S., or stay here after graduating, create jobs and economic growth because many start businesses, he writes."
