+ - IT workers coushioned from US economic downturn->

Submitted by DontLickJesus
DontLickJesus (1141027) writes "According to the AP technology has been the least hardest hit by the U.S.'s recent economic downturn.

Quote:
"Overall technology employment is up in America and the wages associated with it are up," said John McCarthy, a vice president with Forrester Research.

The article goes on to say that companies realize the worth of their [IT] staff. This paired along with a recent article regarding the value of data centers when selling a company leads one to believe that the business world, while historically not fond of IT workers, is showing it's true opinion of the sector. Have those reading this article in the tech sector recently experienced this, or is the business side just telling IT what it wants to hear?


Full Disclosure:
I am a developer for a Fortune 500 company in financial services, though in no way associated with the article."
