Electric Boat Downsizing?

This article from Newsday discusses EB President John Casey's announcement that the shipyard may drop up to half of their employees in the next few years. With the Jimmy Carter finally finished, they mostly just have Virginia-class work and overhauls now. Although not specifically stated, my guess is that most of the attrition will take place among the design staff; with the Virginia class design work essentially done, and no new class coming along, most of them become expendable.
