‘No IT skills crisis’, say US labour unions
Tom Foremski US labour leaders have attacked high-tech companies’ claims that there is a serious IT skills shortage in the US. The Department for Professional Employees (DPE) has sent a letter of protest to the US Congress complaining that US technology firms’ real motivation is not looking for workers but paying lower wages. “There is no proven crisis regarding the demand for IT workers that justifies the drastic action of filling these jobs with foreign workers,” said DPE chairman Morton Bahr. “We should be very careful about IT employers crying wolf just to enlarge the labour pool, depress salaries and benefits and undermine working conditions.”
