STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Workforce Trends and Policy Considerations $69.00
Editors: Clark Martin Garcia and Scott Cook
Book Description:
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workers drive our nation's innovation and competitiveness by generating new ideas, new companies and new industries. However, U.S. businesses frequently voice concerns over the supply and availability of STEM workers. Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs. STEM workers are also less likely to experience joblessness than their non-STEM counterparts. Science, technology, engineering and mathematics workers play a role in the sustained growth and stability of the U.S. economy, and are a critical component to helping the U.S. win the future. This book explores workforce trends and policy considerations for STEM students and workers. (Imprint: Novinka)
