Dell lay off 1900

RTE just confirmed that Dell in Limerick is laying off 1900 staff and transferring production to Eastern Europe. 1000 staff are staying, they are all high end and support staff apparently. I wonder how long before those 1000 are whittled down to a few hundred and then phased out completely. I have friends working with Dell, I hope they are ok and their jobs are safe for the moment, at least until the economy recovers and jobs become easier to find.
