STEM Jobs

STEM subjects, also known as STEM jobs are jobs that require at least a bachelor degree in science, engineering, technology and math; hence the acronym STEM (Smith).  STEM jobs were created to encourage more people to take an interest in all of these field which will help stimulate the economy.  STEM jobs do in fact pay more than normal jobs. Those who have STEM jobs can earn almost double of what those on the normal workforce make (Wright)Image
