+1, but I just wanted to add one more data point from one of my two job streams (i.e. not CodeProject)

The ever-tightening belt to show profits seems to be leading to some companies to lay off full-time staff, and switch the work to contractors. One of the places I do work for used to be almost entirely full-time, on-site staff. Now it's >50% contractors (it's been a while since I looked, probably almost 70% now). Every contracting company is required to include "offshore" resources in their bids. The smaller shops that used to fill in for some groups have been pushed out, leaving only the bigger, cheaper, less skilled companies to (incorrectly) do the work.
