Referees in the area of Pleasanton will have a hard time judging children's little league baseball and soccer games this weekend, as parents might take out their frustration over the layoffs at Peoplesoft on them. Oracle is expected to announce the first round of mass layoffs at the recently acquired company on Friday. About 4,000 of Peoplesoft's 11,000 employees live in the city east of Silicon Valley.
The city fears losing its largest employer, and all businesses that depend on it such as restaurant.
The San Jose Mercury News went over to the city and described the eerie atmosphere that took over parts of Pleasanton. Since the takeover became final one month ago, Oracle has been interviewing the Peoplesoft employees to determine who can stay and who has to go.
``People are not coming out with warm, fuzzy feelings,'' an anonymous Peoplesoft marketing employee told the newspaper. ``It's more of, `What is it you do? Well, this is how we do it. Don't call us, we'll call you.' A lot of people want to stay, but it's mostly because of their personal financial situations.''
