High-tech Job Market Has Lost More Than 400,000 Jobs

Allison Linn, Associated Press:

The nation’s information technology industry lost 403,300 jobs between March 2001, when the recession began, and April of this year, the researchers found.

Perhaps more surprising, just over half of those jobs — 206,300 — were lost after experts declared the recession over in November 2001.

Surprising to whom? These numbers just confirm what everyone already knows: the U.S. job market for nerds just keeps getting worse.
