Well Fab 8.1 is expected to employ 2,100 going on 3,000 staff and Fab 8.2 is taking the total for the whole camput to 6,700.

So that would be between about 3,700 and 4,600 extra jobs.

And remember with automated wafer fabs it is not really about the headcount. It is about the wafer count.

I highly doubt GF will be anywhere close to TSMC or Samsung in terms of competitiveness, given their past track record.

Do you really think that Apple would consider Global just because they've got manufacturing in the US? What recent history leads you to this conclusion?

NY will be foundry hub then. Maybe other companies than Apple will be willing to bring manufacturing back but from where 15B USD will come. How much is government's contribution. Also, only 2000 more jobs does not sound like much given the scale of investment.

Apple would definitely consider GF if they are planning to bring back manufacturing to USA.
