Employment in computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are projected to add about 667,600 new jobs. Demand for these workers will stem from greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, and information security.
The median annual wage for computer and information technology occupations was $91,250 in May 2020, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $41,950.
Why have I formed STEM Workers United when there are so many computer jobs out there going begging for workers?
Let me ask you a question.
Why are there so many like myself who have the skills that our employers say they can’t find going without work?
Could it be because even though we create (according to the department of labor) about 67,000 jobs per year, we have this many applicants year over year and have had since about 2000?
Don’t trust my data even though it was built using the Department of Labor Data?
That’s understandable, so lets look at the department of labor’s own data.
The department of labor has one of these for many years, and I’ll be more than happy to show you how to find them so you can do your own due diligence.
Maybe what has happened to so many of us hasn’t happened to you, but I can assure you that it is but a matter of time unless we work together, and yes, I’m more than willing to work with each and every one of you that is concerned about your long term future as a software type in America.
