Almost word for word, this is the story of many of us

A UC Berkeley graduate with degrees in both mathematics and computer science, the 55-year-old programmer had dozens of projects and work opportunities lined up throughout the ’80s and ’90s.

He’s unemployed, and his resume isn’t getting any traction.
