The chief executive of digital mortgage lender Better.com informed 900 employees last week they were being laid off just weeks before the holidays during a mass Zoom meeting.
“If you’re on this call, you are part of the unlucky group that is being laid off,” Better.com CEO Vishal Garg said Wednesday on the call, a recording of which has since circulated on TikTok and YouTube. “Your employment here is terminated effective immediately.”
