Dice: US tech unemployment stands at 3.3 percent

Unemployment in the tech industry is less than half of that in the general population, Dice says

By , IDG News Service |  IT Management

Job growth in the tech industry during the past three-and-a-half years has outpaced growth in the industry after recessions in 1991 and 2001, Dice said.

Melland expects to see tech salaries increase in 2012 when Dice releases its salary survey in the coming weeks. Dice found a salary increase of more than 2 percent in 2011, boosting their average annual wage to US$81,327 from $79,384 in 2010. Wages were flat in the previous two years.
