    is moving its operation to Poland. There go about 1,500 jobs. Technology was brilliant in Ireland due to a highly educated work force, but too expensive now for those profit margins CEOs love so much.
    As America goes, so goes the world. Cheap labor here we come.

    So much for ever collecting more Waterford, and I have a ton of it passed on through generations, unless it's made in Eire what's the point?

    Good luck to the workers. This sucks.

    Erin go bragh!

      I had no idea of this move on their part.  Along with that, I heard yesterday that GM is putting around a billion into a plant in Brazil---that billion is coming out of the handout they received just a few weeks ago from the Federal government.  This is getting ridiculous!  I'm using a Dell laptop right now and I am never buying another one.
