There are plenty of qualified people for high tech and science jobs. The problem is that the employers are looking for too specific of skill requirements and are not willing to pay enough or train.

Pro

Nah, the science people are just too lazy to go train themselves

This argument is now 100 characters long

If they were so 'lazy' how did they manage to get their degrees in the first place? I do not think you are being serious.

Pro

How did they get their degree's in the first place?

Simple, my man: old fashioned cheating and cramming of course!

Me? Not serious? I am being perfectly serious! You only have to look at my debate about obesity to see that (http://www.debate.org...)

While you both had very weak arguments, pro did not at all address the topic. Con didn't provide much proof either, but I vote con.
