Immigration reform must also include a review of the rules for allocating visas to high-skilled workers. Employers repeatedly complain that they are creating more high-skill jobs but can't find workers to fill those posts. At the same time, U.S. workers worry that visas could be used to replace them or depress wages. But the reality is that as baby boomers retire, new workers will be needed. Surely, we need to better educate future generations of Americans, as well as continue to attract the best and the brightest.
