The tech sector is rapidly growing in the southeastern United States, with startups like Dropbox, Spotify, and WhatsApp opening offices in Texas, Florida, and Georgia, and new tech companies entering the region every week.
These companies have made a huge impact on the region’s tech workforce, bringing people into the region to build out companies and help them earn money.
But as the tech sector grows and expands, more and more jobs are being lost.
That’s because tech workers are leaving the region in droves.
“The tech industry is growing rapidly in the Southeast.
I think we’re seeing more and better jobs for people who work in that sector than people who are coming here,” said Mark Schulze, a senior economist at the Center for Automotive Research in Tallahassee.
“The tech sector in the Southwest has been doing really well for years, and it’s just going to keep growing.
The reason that’s happening is because the economy in the region is doing really badly.”
Tech workers are moving away in droversThe tech workforce is shrinking, with just 3.4 percent of U.S. workers employed in tech in 2016.
That number has fallen to just 2.7 percent by 2021, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That has caused many jobs to become untenable in the regions tech hubs.
In the Southwest, tech jobs account for about 6 percent of the workforce, according the Bureau.
The rest are located in Texas and Georgia.
While tech jobs have been increasing in Texas in recent years, that’s not reflected in the regional labor market.
Texas has the nation’s highest unemployment rate, at 6.9 percent.
And according to a 2017 analysis by the Economic Policy Institute, the unemployment rate in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is higher than the national average of 6.4.
The region’s technology jobs are leaving because of a combination of factors, according with Schulge.
“They’re moving away because of the economy as a whole, the economy is not keeping pace with tech,” he said.
“And the workforce is not finding that they’re getting a fair share of the benefits of that tech labor, and the economic growth is not translating into the people who actually need the tech jobs that are being created.”
Schulze said that some of the jobs lost in the tech industry are in high-demand areas, such as finance and marketing.
“If you look at finance and finance jobs, those jobs are getting the highest pay, and so they’re going to stay here,” he told Recode.
“But if you look across the board, there’s a lot of jobs that aren’t paying as much, and that’s really concerning.”
The tech jobs are moving to TexasThe tech boom has helped attract new talent to the region, but it’s not always easy to find work for people with degrees.
Many tech jobs require a college degree, and some require a degree in finance, accounting, or a related field.
In 2017, only 6.7% of Texas Tech graduates went on to jobs in the U.K. or the U, according data from the College Board.
The remaining 19.7%, which are typically college graduates, were mostly in Texas.
Schuleze said it’s difficult to find tech workers who can work for a company in the United States.
He said many companies that are looking to fill tech positions are looking for people to fill their local job openings.
He pointed to Google and Microsoft as examples of companies looking for a talent to fill those positions.
In recent years there has been a surge in demand for high-paying tech jobs, with companies like Amazon and Netflix opening offices and hiring people from the U of T. These openings are often in the Austin area, where Google and Facebook have their offices, and other cities like Dallas and Houston.
But in the southwest, companies like Facebook and Twitter have found they can’t fill all of the openings, with some even looking to hire employees from out of state.
It’s hard to get tech jobs in TexasSchulge said it can be difficult for people from other parts of the country to get a tech job.
“It’s not a lot easier to get in and out of the U [of Texas] than it is to get into New York, California, or any other major U.L.A. market,” he explained.
“When you’re going into a big city, you don’t have as many choices.
You have to take the bus or take the train or take a taxi.
And that can be very stressful for people.”
