Shortage of programmers and engineers will push up wages - DutchNews.nl: "Smart industry is up and coming and it’s not just ICT companies who are looking for programmers, it’s pretty much everyone else as well. 38% of programmers are approached with a job offer more than once a week. Some have taken their LinkedIn account off line because of it. Engineers and technical staff account for 32%. System developers come in third. In fourth place we find… economists, although I have a suspicion that we are talking econometricians rather than your run-of- the-mill macro-economists.
These are the shortages which will be pushing up the average wage, regardless of those employed in other sectors who may or may not want to work an extra couple of hours."
