As IT jobs such as application development and maintenance get shipped offshore, pay for remaining, domestic IT jobs continues to slide. A recent report shows the vulnerable and secure positions.

The offshoring of IT jobs caused IT salaries to slip for the third quarter in a row, according to new research from Foote Partners LLC, a management consultancy and IT workforce research company. "

Gee! Ya think???

I've been saying it for some time: anyone who tells you that offshoring will create more and better jobs for the IT personnel in this country are either A) Stupid beyond belief or B) Being paid by a company whose job it is to offshore our technology lifeblood. It all reminds me of the NAFTA Treaty. They said 'Oh, it'll take the low paying jobs out of the country, but it will create lots of higher paying jobs as a result.'. Is there anyone left here that still thinks they were telling the truth? If so, go down south and tell it to the thousands of textile workers.

Personally, I won't listen. After all, I know crap when I hear it.
