Study: 400K Fewer Tech Jobs Since 2001

    The U.S. information tech sector lost 403,300 jobs between
    March 2001 and this past April, and the market for tech
    workers remains bleak, according to a new report.

    Perhaps more surprising, just over half of those jobs --
    206,300 -- were lost after experts declared the recession
    over in November 2001, say the researchers from the
    University of Illinois-Chicago.

    The industry was way overblown in the first place. To many fake jobs
    created by fake companies that went under.

    Don't complain, retrain yourself. If your job as a buggy-whip maker went
    away, I suggest you learn how to do something else.

    The recession was over in 2001? hehehe yeah right.... From a perspective of
    the construction industry... although there was construction going on... the
    prices were soooo cheap (and still are) that it was impossible to make a
    nickle... and the only reason that construction was going on is because
    interest rates were sooo low.

    But of those 206,300 jobs that *were* lost... how many of those people were
    actually worth employing? The economy was going crazy in the mid to later
    '90's.... I remember that I could buy a stock at breakfast and by lunch
    tripled my money (of course things also went the other way too) but you just
    don't seem to see that right now... I think the economy is more in a
    stabilization period right now....

    "Experts" what do they know?

    That is because our President sucks.
    He also said the war is over. Really? why are we still in
    iraq?
    Where are the WMD?
    Why hasnt he done anything about gas prices? because he
    is making millions of dollars off of it since he has alot
    of personal money invested in oil.
    Bush doesn't care about the american people and I don't
    about him.

    Maybe, but he didn't cause the tech boom/bust.

    > He also said the war is over. Really? why are we still in
    > iraq?


    Technically, the war vs. Iraq is already won. Unfortunately, we are now
    fighting a new war against different opponents. These people don't want to
    see democracy in the middle-east.

    > Where are the WMD?


    The problem with this argument is you act like the President is the only one
    who believed it. He isn't. The Russians, Brits, French etc... they all
    believed that they existed.

    > Why hasnt he done anything about gas prices?


    Supply and demand dictates gas prices. The demand is currently really high
    and it will only get worse as winter hits. The supply keeps being affected
    as well by things like unrest in Iraq, Russian oil companies assessts being
    frozen, political unrest in Venezula.

    at one point in time they had them, they could easily have produced
    them again. To me that's good enough reason.
