Google just informed 12,000 people, 6% of the google workforce that they were out of work. A Google engineer said survivors of the recent mass layoffs cried in meetings on the day of the firings. I’d cry too if I left a job like the one depicted in the clip below. It’s a wonder any work gets done.
In video calls that day, “some of the folks were sobbing, they were drying their eyes,” the employee, an engineer for Google on the East Coast, said.
Two engineers told Insider some remaining staff are worried about further job cuts. The surviving staff were “angry and sad” and thought Google was different.
“This is just another big company,” he said. “Now, anything that used to feel special or like you really were a part of a mission — not just a big money-making machine — that feeling is I think gone.”

I have seen a few booms and busts in the tech industry, my hunch was it would happen in the so called “big tech”. “Big Tech” is not technology, it is information flow, for advertising and leftist purposes, Yes, there are some good things from it, such as improved search algorithms, which make life better in some ways. But the industry in general shows the typical distortion of free enterprise.
I have seen younger engineers make the mistake of going out to the land of milk and honey to get their pot of gold. Lots of them never made a budget. Their big pay was dwindled by costs, $3200 a month studio apartments, 11% sales tax, housing more than double the norm if they want to buy and get a 50 year loan. The free lunches and dinners are going away. It was a lure. They cannot last 3 months without a job. Most have no future there.
The ones that are left wanted some kind of psychological assurances or help. I forget the term used. So, what Google has left are a bunch of babies, or should I say adolescents who cannot handle the real world out there.
Well they can always ‘learn to code’. LOL
It reminds me in the 80’s during a farm crisis. One particular farmer astonished me when he said, “they expect a farm to be run like a business”.
The workers at these tech companies want a life the same as when living with their parents. I’d be curious to know how much real productivity each individual contributes. It appears it’s less of a business and more of a “job machine”.
I think it sounded more like a playpen for spoiled useless brats who produce nothing of value.
