HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) The tech industry has changed the workplace, leaving many employers with few ways to replace workers with computers.

In a sign of how fast things have changed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics found this week that computer-related employment in the U.S. has more than tripled over the past decade.

That was mostly thanks to advances in artificial intelligence and artificial intelligence-related technology.

That shift has driven a flood of outsourcing of jobs from human resources consulting to software development to hardware manufacturing to software engineering to manufacturing.

For many workers, the shift means a job at a computer consulting firm is almost impossible.

It also means that some workers don’t have a job lined up at the time they need one.

The numbers are stunning, but what really matters is that they show that the technology boom has left the workforce behind, said Mark Clements, a professor at the University of New Hampshire and a leading expert on technology trends.

“When you’re outsourcing a job to someone else, it’s a very big deal.

You’re essentially taking a job that was once held by somebody else, putting it into someone else’s hands,” he said.

It also means companies don’t pay workers as much as they used to, which means that the average worker makes about $11.50 less per hour than before.

That’s a drop of more than 30 percent over the last decade, when the average wage was about $19.

The data is especially shocking because it shows that the tech boom has been so massive that most people don’t even know they’re working for it.

In the last three years, there have been more than 15.4 million layoffs.

The U.K.’s Office for National Statistics estimated last year that 4.5 million people were laid off.

It has also said that the number of workers in manufacturing fell by more than 20 percent last year, and that more than 500,000 people lost their jobs.

A few companies have taken a stand against the outsourcing, including Apple and Microsoft.

The former recently announced that it will no longer hire people from China, where it outsources work to the lowest-paid workers in the world.

Apple announced in June that it would no longer use outsourcing to manufacture its computers.

It will instead use suppliers from China to make its chips.

The company says the move is needed to save money and cut costs.

Microsoft said last month that it has laid off about 700 people since late 2015, and it says it will cut about 1,000 workers in that same time period.

Apple declined to say how many of those workers were affected by its decision to stop outsourcing.
