The bankrupt Apple supplier making sapphire glass in Mesa asked for court approval today to lay off 890 employees in Mesa, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, keeping a skeleton crew of 75 at the factories.

The company also has 550 temporary contract workers in Mesa who likely will be out of work as soon as the factory shuts down.

The company did not detail how many of the 890 job losses would occur in Mesa, but based on public information the company has provided, it appears to have about 470 workers there in addition to the 550 contract workers.
