Kelly Cunningham, an economist at the National University System Institute for Policy Research, said laid-off workers would likely have to move to other places to find jobs at wages matching what they earned at Qualcomm.
Commenting on the lay-offs, Cunningham said, “With engineering, it gets so specialized,” he said. “I have wondered if these workers are going to have a challenging time finding at least equal paying work in San Diego. It might require them to move to wherever they can find opportunities.”
