The Nashville Business Journal
reported today that pink slips will proliferate among workers today at Dell's manufacturing plant in Lebanon and its distribution center in Nashville, which employ about 3,200 Middle Tennesseans.
A spokesman for Dell didn't specify how many, though he did say most would be notified by the end of the day.
Dell shuttered its desktop manufacturing division in Lebanon January, probably in response to a widespread aversion to the outmoded, space-hogging dinosaurs in favor of itty bitty laptops.
The cuts here are a part of a company-wide trimming, or, in weird business-speak, "right-sizing."
