Layoffs expected at computer maker Dell's US plant

Layoffs expected at computer maker Dell's US plant

Dell Inc. is laying off workers around the world but won't say how many or where. The computer maker will confirm only that some of the employees are based at an assembly plant in North Carolina.
Dell opened the North Carolina factory in 2005, after state and local officials promised economic incentives worth more than $300 million. Dell planned to invest $100 million and create 1,500 jobs.
Dell spokesman Jess Blackburn said Wednesday the layoffs were part of the company's efforts to streamline. But he would not say how many positions the company was cutting in North Carolina _ or elsewhere.
The Round Rock, Texas-based company has been shifting work from its own factories to contract workers in the last year as the personal computer market has declined.
