Micron says it will fill 900 high-wage jobs in Boise, Idaho

Company credits product diversification for its growth

Micron Technology Inc., Idaho’s largest private employer, said Thursday it will hire people to fill about 900 high-paying jobs at its Boise facility.

Economists said it’s good news for the local economy and local high-tech workers looking for jobs.

"This is really due to the success we’re having due to our diversification efforts," Micron spokesman Dan Francisco said Thursday. In recent years, Micron has moved away from producing memory chips for personal computers and started making newer-generation flash memory chips and image sensors for handheld electronic devices and cell phones.
