...The IT worker glut will be increased even more by improved automation of information system maintenance, standardization of software, and non-IT specialists who are increasingly sophisticated with information technology.
Industry changes all the time like this. Technological improvements and competition cause displacement. This is why there are hardly any steel workers in the USA. This is why there are no welders on the auto assembly line as they have all been replaced by robotic automation. White collar computer related positions are not going to be immune from this. You must adapt to this reality.
There can be nothing to stop this devastating trend, due to the following:
1) Corrupt USA politicians 2) USA IT workers are not willing to organize 3) Influential corporations have effectively distorted the issues
I agree that these things can affect how fast the industry changes, but organizing IT workers (i.e. unionize) will cause an even faster exodus of jobs.
