    Top universities around the country are producing a huge number of black and Hispanic science, computer engineering and computer science graduates, but less than half are hired by leading technology companies, according to an analysis.

    James here is your real reason

    research from the Economic Policy Institute contends that only half of American students who graduate with a degree in science, technology, engineering or maths ends up with a job in that field.

    According to a paper by Professor Hal Salzman and other researchers, a third to half of new IT jobs go to foreign workers rather than graduates.

    Based on figures from the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and Current Population Survey data, they estimate that 160,755 foreign workers were given H-1B or other work visas for IT jobs in 2011, out of 483,692 jobs that went to candidates with a bachelor's or master's degree.
    “It has nothing to do with any lack of American workers,” Professor Hira said. “It is simply that the foreign workers will work for less.”
