Report: Dell Set For Major Layoffs

A report over the weekend from a UK paper says that Round Rock-based Dell is getting set for a major layoff--some bad news for the technology industry here. The Register said that Dell is looking to cut 15 percent of its staff--or as many as 15,000 people--as it continues to see pressure in a stagnant PC business. The Register cited "two sources" with knowledge of the cuts, one of which called it a "bloodbath." Dell has not made any statements about the potential for layoffs at the company.
