Al - I wanted to be sure you saw this item from the AFL-CIO Work in 
Progress today, that may relate to the problems NWU tech writers are having:
HIGH-TECH BUST--A new report shows that U.S. high-tech workers
still face chronic unemployment and a serious jobs deficit
despite an economic recovery. "America's High-Tech Bust," a
report by the Center for Urban Economic Development at the
University of Illinois, Chicago, found the U.S. high-tech
economy lost a whopping 203,000 jobs between November 2001, when
the recession officially ended, and April 2004. The university
conducted the research for the Washington Alliance of Technology
Workers, a local of the Communications Workers of America.
