Coral Springs, Florida

Victor was evicted from his apartment after his contract programming job at First Data was offshored. He's working again, but says he has little hope for the future.

Santa Clara, California

A former Palm software engineer, Humphries, 30, says she traveled to India to train her replacements, and has testified before Congress about her experience.

If you missed Natasha testifying before congress, well you missed a real treat: she was amazing. Even the senators were impressed.
