    Re: outsource

    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.
