I agree with items 1 - 4 as legitimate worries but would like to have more details of why items 5 is a concern. Unemployment rate for the engineering community is still high, so lack of general engineering talent does not seem to be an issue. Past reductions in fab tool labor seem to indicate there is still an available fab tool talent pool, unless they have transitioned into other areas. Obviously the volatility of the fab tool market tends to decrease interest in entering this area, but no more so than other areas within the industry.
