Irish Labor is Too Expensive

Widely reported, but Dell is in the process of moving a manufacturing plant from Limerick to Poland. Labor costs are reportedly 2/3 rds lower.

The reaction of political leaders ? Irish deputy prime minister Mary Coughlan said 'the government hoped Dell would choose Ireland for future investment, reflecting the nation's ambition to become a European hub for research and development'.

This is only what every developed and semi-developed country in the world is planning. Not an original idea in their head.
