I have degrees in math and computer science from the late 80s. Ditto my husband. He’s a database administrator. We’ve both been in IT our entire careers and are SICKENED to see what’s happened with all of the outsourcing. We are sick of training our Indian replacements, having to sign ‘we won’t sue’ paperwork in order to get our severance packages, etc. We are high performers with careers of commendations and promotions, but now that we are in our early 50s, we honestly worry if this field will take us to retirement (and we have two high schoolers we need to put through college).
