Re: Good Luck

Labor is a fairly small and shrinking component of the cost of operating a fab, which is dominated more and more in every generation by the building and equipment (which has hit $20 billion for a modern leading edge fab)

If the labor laws cause it to cost 1-2% more to operate in Germany that's not an issue as they'll get that back and plenty more from EU subsidies to build it, and have less tariff risk.
