Oracle DBA's threatened by offshoring?

Oracle News by Burleson Consulting


This eWeek article notes that offshoring has the greatest impact on what they call "low-end" IT workers such as Database Administrators:

"Despite reports that offshoring's impact may be overstated and that it has primarily affected "low-end" jobs such as database administration, while high-end jobs are showing a growth rate comparable to the tech boom years, tech professionals are not reassured."

The article also notes concerns about H1B visa fraud:

"Employers who choose to do so [hire H1B visa professionals] can easily manipulate the system to pay below-market wages. And the program accelerates the offshoring of high-skilled jobs by training people who then become our overseas competition."

There are also claims that the IT growth trend is a very weak and unemployment remains high:

"Technology job growth is weak at best in most major markets across the country. Tens of thousands of highly-skilled American IT workers remain unemployed or underemployed, while at the same time, more and more technology jobs are being shipped out of the country."
