Think Tank Says Tech Responsible for 30% of Jobs

The National University System Institute for Policy Research has concluded that technology industries account for 30% of jobs in the San Diego metro area. The 6,023 tech employers account directly for 138,800 jobs, says the institute. But these jobs generate another 224,200 jobs, sustaining 29.3% of payroll employment. As of last year, the average wage in tech industries was $93,800, more than twice the $45,000 average wage of non-tech companies.

Make that 6023 minus ~500: "formal emails have gone out and the entire San Diego [HP] Software unit is being rolled up. The number laid off is around 500,..." From TechCrunch http://techcrunch.com/2011/10/11/source-hps-layoffs-taking-effect-today-500-gone-from-san-diego-group/

Not newly hired Meg W's fault, I guess, but not good PR for her.

Those San Diego jobs are going to Shanghai and Israel. Anyone feel like moving? The era of Tech migrant workers? Follow the work....

I don't know if the researchers took those layoffs into account. Best, Don Bauder

The article on TechCrunch is inaccurate. The layoffs in San Diego are not related to the demise of the Touchpad or WebOS at all. The San Diego unit was producing enterprise software for the IT Management market, not WebOS.

Thanks for the info. Someone who seems to know firsthand tweets that "The printer people are still there but the software group is out." https://twitter.com/#!/alexc099

One can't believe every tweet one meets. We need clarification. Best, Don Bauder

We have a controversy here. Best, Don Bauder
