Is a question many of us ask, especially those involved in the high-technology industries in New Jersey. Anecdotally, the last few years have felt like there was a mass exodus of high tech jobs. It seems that it what we felt was true.
New Jersey has lost 14 percent of its high-technology jobs since 2000, and the brain-job drain has drilled deep into the state’s once-solid pharmaceutical industry, according to a report by the Commission on Science and Technology.
But the erosion doesn’t stop there. The report said New Jersey has lost high-tech jobs in every category, including life sciences, telecommunications, computers, electronics, Internet service, data processing, architecture and engineering.
But hey, who needs a high paying job anyway? We can all live off our home equity!
