11. Exactly
My husband is hanging on as the last non-foreign DBA in his group, but it means doing the work of 2 or 3 people, routinely working 10 and 12 hour days, and many weekends and holidays, with not a penny of pay or comp time for the extra hours.

I am afraid the overwork and stress will make him sick if not worse. And he's one of the lucky ones. His brother, a programmer, has been out of work for more than three years, and works temp jobs for places like UPS from time to time.

Curse the corporate bastards who are screwing every possible American out of decent jobs they could live on.
