This article focuses on Security Industry Association's (SIA) annual report about the U.S. business scenario of 2004. The SIA expects employment to continue to rise. By November, it had reached 798,000, up 3.6 per cent from the year before. But after the market collapsed in 2000, Wall Street shed 83,000 jobs. Its high point was in March 2001, when securities and commodities industry employment reached 840,000. By May 2003, employment in the industry has declined almost 10%, to a low of 757,800. Since then, 40,200 jobs-almost half of those lost-have been added.
