IT Hiring:  IT Competents Demand Greater Than Supply

Given the described state of IT education, there are not enough IT competent workers to meet demand (see ahead) of government, business, media, etc., at least not enough IT competent workers to pay them the little they want to pay them and not more like doctors and lawyers; see The Most Important IT Credential: An IT Education. Yes, you have to pay more for IT competence, but even in the short term it is well worth it, particularly considering the cost of data breaches. See also IT Hiring: Don't Care / Skimp On What You Don't Know About.

Non-equilibrium IT worker supply and demand means there will be some trade-offs made, which all mean hiring the IT incompetent.
