Dell Chops More In NC, Central Texas

Round Rock-based Dell Computer is apparently in the midst of a major layoff, according to numerous sources and reports, and has laid off an unspecified number of staff at its Winston-Salem, North Carolina plant along with locations in Central Texas. Details on the number of layoffs were not released by the firm. The cuts are a continuation of a major restructuring and cost-cutting effort at the firm, which has been chopping jobs worldwide since early last year.
