"The programming company decided to cut back on staff in the US and refered the cheap labor market in India. They have outserced over 50 programmers there. Is "outsource" used correctly in the context?
I understand what you are saying, but in my experience, "outsourced workers" refers to the actual people who are now doing the jobs of the people formerly employed directly by the company - in this case, the Indian programmers.
I would say, "outsourced over 50 programming jobs to India."
I don't currently work in business, but a bit of Googling seems to confirm my previous thoughts about how the term "outsource" is used.
