  1. One in 10 U.S. tech jobs may move overseas-report (1 messages)

    Gartner Inc., the world's biggest high-tech forecasting firm, said in a report entitled "U.S. Offshore Outsourcing: Structural Changes, Big Impact" that 500,000 of the 10.3 million U.S. technology jobs could move just in 2003 and 2004.

    While professionals in the computer industry itself are likely to bear the brunt, the report predicts that one in 20 tech jobs in industry-at-large also could be moved overseas.

    This is especially true in industries with high concentrations of knowledge workers such as banking,
    health care and insurance, the author of the survey said.

    This is a real trend, but lets's face it, 99% of what comes out of the Gartner Group is rubbish.
