Dismal Hi-Tech Job Market

Posted on September 18, 2004

Some very depressing tech industry numbers were reported in a recent USAToday.com article. 403,300 jobs were lost between March, 2001 and April, 2004 and half of these job losses occured after November, 2001 when the recession was supposed to be over. USA Today said that the report found that the "job market for high-tech workers shrank by 18.8%, to 1,743,500, between March 2001 and April 2004." It really looks grim. One thing that would help would be some new technology that people could go crazy about. Something like a home robotics boom or teleportation. Well, one can hope.
