The Euro, Y2K, and the US Software Labor Shortage
May/June 1999 (vol. 16 no. 3)
pp. 55-61

Estimates of unfilled software engineering, management, and support jobs in the US range from 100,000 to more than 300,000. Projects addressing Y2K repairs and euro currency conversion could push the total shortfall to 600,000 jobs. Since there is no reasonable way of filling this many jobs, many companies are deferring substantial volumes of normal software development and maintenance work.
