STEM isn’t just that thing at the end of the maraschino cherry. It means jobs!

Even though STEM workers (folks in science, technology, engineering and math) make up only 5.5% of the national workforce, their salaries are generally 26% higher than their counterparts who studied other fields in school, regardless of whether or not their job is a Stem Job. According to a recent Department of Commerce report, the number of science and technology focused jobs is expected to grow at twice the rate of other fields, and their unemployment rate is generally half that of the general population.

STEM, anyone?
