The India high-tech zone is sucking away great jobs from Western countries, due to their abundance of skilled engineers and much lower wages. But for how much longer can this continue?

According to Yahoo News, India is facing a shortage of high-tech labor, and this could begin to limit their ability to expand in the future.

There are alternatives for hiring skilled engineers and programmers at lower wages, for example in Eastern Europe. However, this may spell the turning of the tide, and ultimately keep more high-tech jobs at home.
