A core issue in the aerospace/defense industry is a shortage of workers requiring a STEM degree. Nearly 39 percent of aerospace/defense companies recently predicted an “extreme” impact on business growth caused by a labor shortage. Competition is only going to get more intense as high tech, automotive and oil and gas industries start to overlap when it comes to technology development.
That's where the H-1B Person in Specialty Occupation visa can help. The H-1B visa is the most sought after employment-based immigration category, and though the H-1B Cap has been met for fiscal year 2019, that should not deter aerospace and defense employers from hiring foreign workers.
