Why Foxconn Is Considering Engineers From China - Forbes
Some controversy emerged with a report that Foxconn, a Taiwanese company, plans to transfer engineers from China into Wisconsin to staff its large expansion into the state.

Manufacturing is firing on all cylinders, but a lack of skilled workers is squeezing the sector - CNBC
The U.S. manufacturing sector is booming — adding 350,000 jobs since President Donald Trump took office in January 2017.

2 in 5 Americans Believe the STEM Worker Shortage is at Crisis Levels - Emerson US
While the survey found students today are twice as likely to study STEM fields compared to their parents, the number of roles requiring STEM expertise is growing at a rate that exceeds current workforce capacity. In manufacturing alone, the National Association of Manufacturing and Deloitte predict the U.S. will need to fill about 3.5 million jobs by 2025; yet as many as 2 million of those jobs may go unfilled, due to difficulty finding people with the skills in demand.

The IT revolution and the globalisation of R&D - VOX, CEPR Policy Portal
US firms have begun shifting R&D investment towards non-traditional destinations such as China, India, and Israel. The column argues that this is a response to a shortage in software and IT-related human capital within the US. When US multinationals are able to import talent or export R&D work, this reinforces US technological leadership. Conversely, politically engineered constraints on this response will undermine the competitiveness of US-based firms.
