       The availability of low cost tech workers has led to a decline in corporate training. In the 70s and 80s the companies I worked for were really big on training the current staff and upgrading their skills. With the advent of cheaper staffing companies like the Indian body shops, training for the staff became an unnecessary luxury. I once asked an IT VP about training some staff on a new technology and was told that it wasn't necessary because contractors could be brought in to do it cheaper. It turned out to be an H1B company.
