Why New York's Technology Sector Needs Immigration Reform
It takes techies to build tech and the booming New York technology economy needs more people trained and skilled in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to fuel its continued growth. Tech/Information is now the number two driver of NYC's economy, second only to finance/real-Estate. In fact, a recent analysis found that between 2007 and 2012, the number of tech/information jobs in NYC grew by 11 percent, or some 26,000 jobs, adding $5.8 billion in additional wages to the economy. Only with an adequate supply of tech talent can this growth continue......

I wonder if Mayor de Blasio knows that Congressman Charlie “Tax-Cheating” Rangel (U.S. Representative for New York's 13th congressional district) wrote the “Heart Taxation Act” into federal law and this is driving away a lot of potential high caliber immigrants from staying here in the USA....?
