Information services jobs continue to decline

total information services jobs since 2000

Next time you hear the claim there is a shortage of technical workers, use this graph! That is pure fiction obviously and a major labor arbitrage agenda, most notably by our offshore outsourcing industry. This month the information industry dropped 18,000 more jobs.

Also note the DOL does not differentiate between a foreign guest worker or even an illegal immigrant in their data. So, of the above, one cannot tell if that I.T. worker is on a H-1B, L-1 guest worker Visa or is an U.S. worker. Talk about data distortions, this has to be a major one, completely ignored!
