Yesterday, President Obama recently held a Google + "hangout" session where he answered questions from Americans on a variety of issues. When a woman asked him why the government continues to offer visas to foreigners when Americans are desperate for jobs, Obama told her it was "interesting" that her husband was unemployed as an engineer because what he's "hearing" is that there is a high demand for engineers.

There is a high demand for engineers and other highly specialized skills, the problem is, companies can't afford to hire in Obama's economy, despite the demand and need for those positions to be filled. .
