Here is an article about one survey that found that 14 of the top 50 best jobs in America are in the tech sector (or at least require STEM skills):
They rated the jobs using a combination of factors: number of openings, company satisfaction, median salary, etc. The article went on to point out that many of these tech-related jobs are not even at traditional tech companies. In other words, everyone needs to know something about technology.
This sort of article points to the need for teaching things like computer skills and coding in elementary school.
