The Phoenix Business Journal reported today the “reductions” would be impacting generally no more than a few hundred employees in Chandler. Intel currently has about 11,000 employees in Chandler.
Man, I bet those were great jobs! This could really hurt some families.
I wonder if it will have an impact on home prices in Ocotillo – a favorite area for Intel employees to live – and the surrounding areas of Chandler.
One Response to Intel to lay off hundreds in Chandler!
I was worried about a few hundred jobs but just read a report about the Arizona semiconductor industry’s decline in jobs.
“There were 32,800 semiconductor and electronics jobs in the state last month. That is down from 35,200 a year earlier… Arizona had 60,000 semiconductor jobs back in 2000.”
