Glen Wiley was an IT employee for 29 years at MassMutual. He said he was among the employees given the option of taking a job with Cognizant. Wiley said it wasn't much of choice. He either had to take the job with Cognizant or leave his job without severance.
Wiley left his job.
"As a military veteran I felt that accepting the job was not an option," said Wiley. "To go to work for a company and teach H-1B workers technical skills that would help them replace American workers would be un-American," he said.
"I was fortunate that I could walk away to stand up for my principles. Many others had to compromise their principles so they could feed their families. I was the lucky one," said Wiley. Now he is waiting to see what Trump might do.
