One man's crusade against outsourcing American jobs The Christian Science Monitor (4/20)

Michael Emmons had logged almost six years as a software developer when he and more than a dozen colleagues received bad news: Their employer was replacing them with workers from India.

And instead of outsourcing the jobs to India, Siemens ICN had a plan that was every bit as controversial - importing Indians to do the work here. The Americans even had to train their Indian replacements in order to receive severance pay. "They told us this is the wave of the future, and we just have to go with the flow," Mr. Emmons says.

So what is Emmons doing? He's running for Congress from Florida's Seventh District. Give 'em hell boyo.
