I was more or less reiterating what was said in one of the first messages
on this subject.
Y2K, too many contractors in the market, tighter budgets.  I believe it's a
combination of all those things.
Also add into the mix the desire for companies to migrate from RPG
development to other languages such as Java.

I don't understand this. It doesn't explain why so many consultants are out
of work now, or the many who's contracts are winding down, and they have
nothing lined up.
