Income inequality related to deindustrializa... and the skill-based economy

The importance of academic scholarship.

Table 3 shows that the growth in work-place computer use has not been uniform across demographic or skill groups. Women, college educated workers, whites, and white collar workers are more likely to use  computers and have experienced greater wage growth since 1979 than men, non-college workers, blacks, and blue collar workers respectively.

...

Computers, the Internet, and electronic commerce also raise the returns to marketing and problem solving skills to better match customers’ idiosyncratic preferences to existing products and service. Bresnahan (1999) posits such an organizational complementarity between computers and workers who possess both greater cognitive skills and greater “people” or “soft” skills.

...

These predictions are consistent with the findings of Autor, Katz, and Krueger (1998) that increased computer intensity is associated with increased employment shares of managers, professionals and other highly educated workers, and with decreased employment shares of clericals, production workers, and less educated workers.
You'd think this would be a good time to A) have a lot of education; and B) work in the education field, but postindustrial employment trends (such as in manufacturing and the service sector) which have benefited management and built an army of of low-wage, no-benefits, contingent workers have been replicated in the higher education field. K-12 teacher are organized in unions and have not suffered in the same way. It's as simple as that.
