Submission + - Technology Pay is Rising in Smaller Cities

markfeffer writes: "Pay for technology jobs is growing, in large part because it’s become harder to hire people with the skills companies want. That’s reflected in IT’s unemployment rate, which is hovering just below 4%. Supply and demand being what it is, the sector’s labor shortage is pushing up pay, especially in areas that aren’t known for their tech communities. While pay in the tech sector increased about 5% between 2011 and 2012, places like Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Milwaukee saw salaries rise 18%, 13% and 10% respectively. (For the record, Silicon Valley’s pay dipped 2.8% during the same period.) It seems kind of ironic when you consider that technology’s being blamed for wiping out American middle class jobs."
