And it not only trying to win over Americans tomorrow night but the folks who hire those Americans but not nearly that rate you would think -- this stage in a recovery.
That's because Intel CEO Paul Otellini tells me.
It's really not much a recovery.
We haven't really seen the growth that you would normally see after recession.
You are seeing some sort of the normal.
-- jobless recovery which we see the early signs of productivity but not the jobs and I know that that is the number one concern for certainly -- in Washington and and those of us out here and on the West Coast as well.
As you know he is and as a members' jobs -- -- -- that he is up states a lot of this on.
More stimulus and more aggressive -- days of the -- it restructures joining alike will be crucial.
He's going to -- that again.
Tomorrow we're told in his State of the Union Address but it comes and -- and a very heated political year isn't sure you're aware -- better than many.
-- you don't have a receptive congress to -- so what's gonna happen.
What all we know I certainly would like to see.
The administration -- congress pretend that it wasn't an election -- there's some real work to be done you can't take a year off every other year.
I think though that you know pay if you look at the report the jobs council that we issued last week.
There's a there's a lot in there that is very appealing to both sides positions around tax reform regulatory reform.
Immigration reform education improvements and so forth that.
I think are are likely to be accepted -- sides.
And you know what I would like to see them do is is you know dig into it and work on it and -- the things that they -- compromise on and and get some action.
-- still -- a company like Intel commits itself to.
-- spending on research and development that sort of thing affected anything.
You guys are sort of kidded about how much you commit to doing that but the difference would you and -- the United States government -- you have the money to do it.
We don't so the -- Republicans.
Not overly -- politicize this is that.
The -- there's not the wiggle room for the president to do kind of a broad initiatives you outlined.
Not always we're broke we don't have the options at an Intel would have to invests but he -- Well it -- it you can you can pick apart -- one of the recommendations -- -- I'll I'll give you one that that I worked on personally which was around.
Let's let's graduate 101000 more engineers in this country per year all of -- that have -- have a right to workers have to deal with the immigration issue.
And there's a very solid program we put together around that -- implementing a starting February.
We've got the -- the largest engineering schools in the country behind it and we didn't need one -- federal money and we did all all the all we're using the -- the government -- is basically to have the -- the imprimatur behind that.
Still the problem in the United States -- pushing engineers is.
I don't know what it is hardly used -- -- in -- some part of speeches it doesn't seem to be cool.
To be an engineer they look aloof they look.
Descendant of minority I mean I built a career on a myself but still I think it's a tough sell and and that's why so your counterparts at.
Microsoft and Google I -- -- on Google's board but look at.
Hiring from abroad because there isn't demand -- woman's hour here when -- Well I -- -- -- are what one is it that we can we can certainly do more to make it look cool make it it is you know building things is a cool thing.
And so one of our programs around us this agenda is to actually.
How to stay with the program if you look at the data.
-- the United States is flat for about two decades -- -- 120000 engineers a year graduating.
But almost twice that number start.
Their freshman year in engineering programs and then and then a -- -- on the way there are so we could double the number of engineers people -- already had an interest.
Are qualified to do engineering work by virtue the fact that they got into school looked at that level.
If we can just simply deal with the with the attrition rate and that's what we're focusing on there's no magic here is just really applying the best known methods of the best schools on an exit.
