Semiconductor Job Outlook

With big players joining the fray in job cuts, the semiconductor job outlook looks atrociously grim. The recent figures and estimates suggest that this recession is one that was not witnessed before and here to stay. The list below gives the more recent jobcuts and updates.
If you are someone who is affected by this crazy economy, you are not alone. Everyday millions of people, not just in the semiconductor business but in all industries go to work without knowing if their job is safe.

Is there a practical solution to end this carnage quickly? I don't think so! We just have to ride it out.

The Race
