    "I'm out $30,000." --What does it mean?

    Tom McGuire, a licensed contractor in Toledo, Ohio, has not had a job since December. The economy is partly to blame, he said, adding that he did a job last summer and never got paid.
    As the general contractor on the job, he said, he was financially liable for materials and the work of two subcontractors. "I'm out $30,000," McGuire said.-----

    What does it mean? He owes or he is owed?

    Thank you.
