Intel Are, Yes, Sacking A Bunch Of People

In keeping with today's theme, Intel - manufacturers of processors that are probably in the machine you're reading this on and maybe also in a machine you game on - announced some job cuts.

The company are to close four of their manufacturing plants: two in Malaysia, one in the Philippines and one in the US. Another facility, in Santa Clara, will also be closed.

All up, that will directly affect 5000-6000 Intel employees. As in, most of those 5000-6000 will soon be out of a job, as Intel say only some of them will be offered work at other locations.
