The volatility of the games industry is horrible. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to finally get your dream job working in the industry only to have that rug ripped out from under you when your company goes belly up or this happens.

IT is one of the fastest growing and highest demanded fields. So when they use these folks like toilet paper and throw them away it's absolutely disgusting.
