Why In The World Is That Doctor Driving Your Cab?

Can you imagine if your entire collegeeducation became worthless overnight?


Think it's time to recognize immigrants' expertise and apply their talents to the fields in which they belong? Consider this:


  • Almost 30% of foreign-born workers in the U.S. are equipped with a bachelor's degree or higher, yet only one out of five of them is either unemployed or working a low-skill job.
  • About 22% of immigrants with foreign degrees are unemployed versus 16% of native-born Americans.
  • One of the major reasons for these immigrants' underutilization is the lack of recognition for foreign academic credentials. Guess everyone can't go to Oxford or Cambridge.

Want to revitalize the American economy? Let's start by recognizing the talent we already have — and that keeps coming to our shores every day.

When Jonathan Irons was 16, he was put on trial for burglary and assault with a weapon. According to CBS Sports, Irons was tried as adult, and an all-white jury found him guilty—despite there being no witnesses, no fingerprints, no footprints, and no DNA proving his guilt.

Irons began his 50-year sentence in a Missouri state prison in 1998. Now, 22 years later, he's a free man, largely thanks to the tireless efforts of a WNBA superstar.

Maya Moore is arguably the most decorated professional women's basketball player in the U.S. A first-round draft pick in 2011, she's played for the Minnesota Lynx, where she became a six-time WNBA All-Star, a five-time All-WNBA First Team player, a four-time WNBA champion, and the WNBA Most Valuable Player in 2014.

But before the 2019 season, in the peak of her career, Moore decided to take the year off for a different kind of court battle—one that had wrongfully convicted a young man and doomed him to spend most of his life behind bars. Her decision rocked her sport, and there was no guarantee that sacrificing an entire season to fight for criminal justice reform would bear any fruit.
