Sorry no upside. Hi-tech jobs are leaving this country at an alarming rate. These are the white collar jobs that were paying 100K/ year. On the bright side, companies are finding that the golden lining of offshoring isn't so golden. Rates are going up in India and the programmers don't have the talent of the US engineers. The model that companies are trying to use is the same model that was used in manufacturing. However, software development is not an assembly job like a manufacturing job. It requires 90% design engineering. The quality of the software just isn't there.Originally posted by mlitefan
Yep...That is the HUGE upside to all of this that almost never gets discussed.
Hi-tech is so bad in NJ that unemployment will no longer allow any computer related training for those without jobs.
