Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In Megatrends, Naisbitt (1983) declared that America has become a nation of clerks. Once, 70% of the job force was involved in manufacturing; now that same percentage is working in the information processing field. Over the years the national economy has progressed from an agricultural base to an industrial base, and recently from an industrial base to an information base. High technology not only continues to reshape many traditional work functions, it profoundly impacts how America trains and develops its work force.
