I myself have now been out of work for three months (for the record I've
been working in some way or another without a long break since I was 13!).
The market is absolutely dire, I know of another out of work for the pat six
months.

Luckily, I've just secured a three month assignment (hopefully with lots of
extensions).  The down side however is that rates are way down and with the
new government tax regime here in the UK, things are tough...  But still, a
little money, is better than none!

<< The question "Where are all the RPG AS/400 jobs?" has almost become
 rhetorical.  The Nashville, Tn area, once a "hotbed" for AS/400
consultants,
 has very little to offer. >>

The same is true here in the Los Angeles area.  In 23 years in the midrange
arena (18 of them as a contractor), the longest I had ever gone without a
contract was one day.

At the beginning of this year, I was without a contract for two MONTHS, and
know of two other capable contractors who were in the same boat during that
period.

Does anyone think this is a temporary slump in the market, or is this the
death of the RPG contract market?
