"Labor shortage" is the same type of excuse for immigration being pushed on Japan and other East Asian countries.

As if adding gators and monkeys to the farm would increase milk production

Great analogy! I'll be borrowing this one.

Which needs to be taught that this is industry demanding the right to control and limit wages. This is capitalism. This is how it's supposed to work. A labor shortage demands people entering the market correct for labor demands. Wages adjust based on this supply and demand. By always suppressing labor shortages those crying about this are demanding the right to suppress your wage and are anti-capitalists.

You might even see college tuition prices start coming down once industry starts demanding more engineers and scientists.

Supply and demand. It doesn't demand that we bring more people in the market to artificially keep wages stagnant, it demands that industry pays competitive wages against the limited supply.
