Well, well, well, in it's tribute to the workforce oracle decided to have a major layoff Friday, 9/1 right before Labor Day. The damage is 2,500 people laid off in what effectively shuts down development of Sun products (SPARC, Solaris, and storage). Layoff included following sub totals: Santa Clara 1,500; San Diego 400, Austin 100, Broomfield 200, Burlington 50, India 50.
That makes the total for FY18 ( starting 6-1-2017) 7,000, and the total since 6/1/2016 17,000. Expect more layoffs to come. Good luck all!
