PHILADELPHIA -- At last week’s “Preparing Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Jobs in Metropolitan America: The Policy, Practice and Research Issues” conference, former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said that Congress is asked every year for more work visas to staff computer programming jobs because there are no Americans willing or capable to fill those jobs.
