Major employer shuts down in Twin Falls, erasing 500 jobs

Dell Computers is closing its Twin Falls call center that employed 500 people, the Times-News reports today; the center, opened in 2001, was attracted in part by $1.5 million in incentives from the city's urban renewal agency, Chamber of Commerce and the state, which helped attract Dell to open the center in a former Twin Falls grocery store. You can read reporter Joshua Palmer's full story here. This news comes as more than 66,000 Idahoans already were out of work in August, up from fewer than 40,000 a year ago, according to Idaho Department of Labor figures.
