There is a rapid growth of salary levels for high-tech/computer
professionals, and a growing number of positions that companies just can't
fill at any reasonable price. This is what makes this market very different
from that of, say, janitorial services. Companies are greedy, of course,
nut there are good reasons why they are exercising their greed in this
domain rather than any other. Another point is the exterritorial nature
of high-tech jobs. Janitors, manicurists, etc. work for the local market;
there is no sense in collecting all of them from all over the world, to
work in U.S. However, if all developers of frontier information technology
immigrated into U.S., they would still serve the same - global - market,
but enrich American corporations, American government, and local businesses
with results of their work, taxes, etc.
