    My guess is because we're just about the only sector which is still highly in demand.

    For example, I'm (still studying to be) a Ruby on Rails web engineer. When I make my resume available on Monster I'm inundated with offers, from $60k to $110k.  The last call I got I said I didn't think I was a good fit for the position, she said she didn't care, because they had searched for 4 days and hadn't come up with anyone who even remotely qualified. She said 'forget all the other requirements, we're just looking for someone who knows Ruby on Rails.'

    All this senseless bill will do is lower productivity.
