STEM shortage?

This graph is from NYT via Barry Ritholtz:

gainers-and-losers

This is showing number of jobs per 1,000 middle class jobs, with middle class being defined as salary in the range $40,000 – $80,000.

In the loser column, we have “Engineering and Related Technologists and Technicians” going from 17 to 10, and “Engineers” going from 20 to 15.  What ever happened to the big STEM gap?  All those unfilled engineering jobs?  This doesn’t add up.
