I'm not currently on the rumor grapevine for Global, but in semi usually the hiring and firing binges happen because of the demand for the products being manufactured. When people are buying the products, they ramp up production and hire like crazy; When demand drops, they layoff and fire and sometimes reduce hours.

What is this? Cut jobs during expansion and new technologies roll-out. I am confused.
