Alas, the Brian Halla announcement was made the day after this report was published, so he wasn't included. Obviously, he would have been otherwise. [Just a thought: could this article have influenced his decision to retire? I doubt it, too, but you never know...]

Redundency should start with management team as they are the decision maker. A manager's salary equal to 10 or more employees', who should take the equavalent responsible for his paid, right?! It is unfair to let them go with wind, but leaving endless pain to his employees! EE Times focus on top-bottom analysis but ignoring the lives of semiconductor employees! Although the majority of your readers are employees!
