42.5% were satisfied with their financial situation in September

Staffing firm Hudson said its index of IT workers’ confidence in the job market slid in September, after having risen from May to August. Among other findings, Hudson’s report discovered a dip in the portion of IT workers who see their personal finances improving. In August, 51% of IT workers said their personal finances were “getting better these days.” That figure fell to 42.5% in September. Confidence in the job market among U.S. workers overall also dropped in September, according to Hudson. IT worker optimism remained higher than that for workers generally.
