I have two degrees in engineering, 20 contiguous years in analog IC (CMOS) design, and more than 15 patents, but since losing my job months ago I have not been able to replace it. I am in the "creative class," but things have never looked bleaker job-wise. I might add, every I go I interview with 8 or 9 H1B visas (or naturalized citizens) to 1 native American (not to mention the IC design centers being set up all overseas now, China with 44% of all chip production)--it seems like the playing field is really skewed against native-born US citizens, even in our own country.
