What is even more amazing is that the Commerce Department continues to release overly optimistic reports supporting the claims of the IT industry. Overly optimistic is being kind - they are in fact lying. The best employment data available proves that American software professionals are losing jobs. This is a direct result of our government not representing the interests of the middle class.
It is no wonder that American students are turning away from Computer Science majors. This is an urgent issue. In order for America to remain competitive in the global market, we must be the best when it comes to software engineering and innovation. Our government, and private enterprise in their rush to offshore - are failing us.
