The CEO of an online mortgage lender fired 900 of his employees in a brutal Zoom call - then slammed them over being so lazy they effectively 'stole' from customers.
Vishal Garg axed around nine per cent of Better.com's workforce last Wednesday, including its entire diversity, equity and inclusion team, which deals with complaints about racism and sexism in the workplace.
The blunt call saw Garg say: 'This isn't news that you're going to want to hear...If you're on this call, you are part of the unlucky group that is being laid off. Your employment here is terminated effective immediately.'
The 43-year-old said that the 'market has changed' meaning savage cuts to the $7 billion company's workforce were needed to avert disaster.
One axed worker filmed the call and shared it online, complete with a moment where they cursed at Garg as he confirmed the mass lay-offs at the Manhattan-headquartered mortgage provider.
The unidentified male worker could be heard to say 'F**k you dude. Are you f**king kidding me?'
