Tech workforce’s ranks shrinking: “One of every four tech workers endured a stretch of unemployment that lasted at least a quarter sometime between 2000 to 2003. The toll was even higher for workers who ended up in non-tech jobs: two of five suffered through such a hardship. One-third of the Bay Area’s tech workers today are employed by companies that didn’t exist before 1995. These young companies pay slightly more than older companies – but they are also three times more likely to fail.”
