Trump Blamed for Job Losses as India Tech Workers Face CutsSwapana Bhosale was stunned when she found out earlier this month she was losing her job at tech services provider Cognizant Technology Solutions in India. “Pulling people out of projects to sack them is unheard of in our industry,” said Bhosale, who demanded to be fired rather than resign so she can take legal action. Cognizant and peers like Infosys Ltd. and Wipro Ltd. won’t disclose how many jobs they cut, but it appears the industry is going through one of the largest retrenchments in its three-decade-plus history.

One of the great advantages of the United States has, at least historically, been the nations sheer scale. With almost four million square miles of territory, there has almost always been somewhere to go to find land, or at least a living.
