Is this the moment where the balance of power finally shifts to Internet-related employment?
After this morning’s job report, I thought I’d run graphs of three industries where job growth seems healthy. Over the past year, jobs in electronic shopping establishments are up 11% (the zigs and zags come from holiday employment). Jobs in “internet publishing, broadcasting and web search portal” establishments are up 20%. Employment in computer systems design, programming and related is up 5%, but that’s off a much larger base (please excuse the funky formatting…my power is still out).
