Miami to West Palm Beach rated 78 out of 100 in a
recent Wallethub study of welcoming destinations for people with Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math backgrounds. This is a major issue for the
area, as it is these backgrounds that create and sustain innovation. The study
found an overabundance of low-skill, low-wage labor in the area.
This is not a good situation going forward, and should put
more energy behind efforts for change.
