The United States must act now to improve its competitiveness and prevent the loss of high-tech jobs, says IEEE-USA’s incoming president John W. Meredith, P.E.

Meredith, a product development engineer with Agilent Technologies, says the engineering profession “is in a continuing struggle to deal with the effects of global competition. The competition was initially in manufacturing, but is now moving more…into design and development work. Because labor rates are lower in many countries, we are losing high-tech jobs. We must act strategically as a nation to improve U.S. competitiveness.”
