The Economic Policy Institute's report asserting that there are enough U.S. professionals trained in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to meet industry demands is being slammed by multiple critics. "To claim that the tech companies that are explaining that they really need to hire more workers, that we need more people educated in STEM education fields, is somehow a fiction, is ludicrous," says Jeffrey Godfrey of the Association for Competitive Technology. Ian Hathaway of Hattery writes, "The 'we have too many high-tech workers' hypothesis is flawed because it is informed by an incomplete set of information. It also lacks common sense."
