I understand that the industry association would like to see an
oversupply of workers.

But perhaps the industry association is lamenting an undersupply of
workers who are more highly skilled than all the currently underemployed
and unemployed ones.

In that case, it'd behoove industry associations to more aggressively
fund innovative CS education approaches and initiatives.

HtDP and TeachScheme are two such beasts that come to mind.
