Offshoring, always an option for companies, could become a necessity. IBM, Dell and other high-tech corporations have come under fire in recent years for shifting jobs overseas. They say it helps them cut costs and be closer to customers in growing markets such as India and China. Soon, they might have a more urgent reason. U.S. universities are producing fewer graduates in computer science, the foundation of many technology jobs.

American Students reacted in the late 80's and 90's when the IT industry claimed a shortage in Computer Science Engineers.
Upon graduation, they did not find the jobs that were promised.
These "talent shortage" shouters are not to be trusted.
Their main focus is to persuade Congress to allow increases in exploitable labor from developing nations.
