LA Times reports the ITAA says that good tech jobs are still widely available. They attribute the continued push for H1B visas to the fact that the people out of work are web designers, marketers, and dot-com consultants, when what industry needs are technically proficient business people. Salaries are still increasing, although at a lower rate than in the recent past. RSA Security is currently looking for 30 people, and Cisco is hiring in new product development.
(FYI: "Purple squirrels" are "people with skill sets that are extremely hard to find," according to a recruiter at EarthLink.)
