Unless you have some evidence of this, stop spreading FUD.  The job
listings for Perl are strong.  They're huge compared to those for
Ruby.  Of course Java is massively more popular than either of them,
but that doesn't make the perl market small.

Python has tons of web frameworks, ORMs, and templating languages too.
 Java has even more.  The only language that has only one significant
web framework is Ruby.
