HOW MANY JOBS COULD WE LOSE?

14 million - The number of U.S. jobs vulnerable to outsourcing (UC Berkeley)

11 percent - The percentage of U.S. jobs vulnerable to offshoring (UC Berkeley)

17 percent - The percentage of Silicon Valley jobs vulnerable to offshoring (UCBerkeley)

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
$70,000 - What the average American computer programmer is paid (UC Berkeley)

$8,250 - What the average computer programmer in India makes (CIO Magazine)

$9,000 - What the average computer programmer in China makes (CIO Magazine)
