More than 8,300 people have been laid off during the last two years in the Springs, 80 percent of them in the high-tech industry.

Many of those who can't find jobs in their field are opening new businesses, learning new trades and picking up temporary work.

Business leaders say that's good news because the city will need those workers again when the economy picks up steam.
