President Obama told a woman there is a huge demand for engineers, so he wanted to find out why her husband is struggling to find work.

“I meant what I said: if you send me your husband’s resume, I’d be interested in finding out exactly what’s happening right there,” Obama told the questioner, Jennifer Weddel of Fort Worth, Texas.

He told Weddel that according to what he was hearing from industry, such high-tech fields are in great demand, and her husband “should be able to find something right away.”

Weddel told Obama that despite what he said, her husband had been out of work for three years. She wanted to know why foreign workers were getting visas for high-skilled work.
