Technology has advanced very rapidly over the last couple of decades, and it seems that this field is what keeps everything else running anymore. I think that we will definitely see increases in the technology field as far as jobs, even when other fields are losing jobs. Tech is where it's at!
Tech companies will likely be the leading source of new jobs created in America over the coming years. The tech industry has come roaring back since the dot-com bust and many companies are growing at steady rates.

Yes, tech companies will produce more laws in the United States by 2018, because Trump has promised to make it more difficult to move jobs overseas. There will be new laws and public pressure from Trump's Twitter feed. The companies will cave to this because they don't want to upset Trump.
Tech companies are going to be the leading source of new jobs in the next decade, and for decades beyond that. It is a new economic world order. Long gone are the days of people doing the bulk of manufacturing jobs. Robots and other technological advances are seeing to that.
