    Hooray for Epson.


    While 600 jobs is a far cry from 2,400, the important thing is that the jobs were kept here, and that they pay a half-way decent salary, with benefits.

    Assuming there's no hidden downside (as there sometimes is with these firms that boast of huge productivity improvements), Epson is to be lauded for keeping the plant here in Portland.
