Layoffs at Intel?

HUDSON

Intel Corp., by far the biggest employer in Hudson, is set to lay off 10,500 jobs companywide, although details have not been announced. That's created some worry in town.

A Worcester Telegram & Gazette editorial says today that the Hudson facility looks poised to emerge with relatively few layoffs.

The editorial points out that since Intel acquired the site from Digital in 1998, it has invested millions of dollars in the plant and that last year it launched an expansion. The editorial also noted the area's experienced and well-trained workforce.
