PayPal Plans To Cut 7% Of Its Workforce In Order To Cut Costs

(CTN NEWS) – The latest fintech company impacted by the economic slowdown, PayPal Holdings Inc, announced on Tuesday that it plans to lay off 7% of its personnel, or roughly 2,000 workers.

The payments company also joins the Big Tech corporations and Wall Street heavyweights in conducting layoffs throughout corporate America as businesses try to control expenses to weather the slump.

PayPal’s decision to maintain strict cost control comes amid decades-high inflation that is eroding customer purchasing power at a time when a potential recession is also a concern.

Dan Schulman, the CEO of PayPal, stated that while “we have made great progress in right-sizing our cost structure and focused our resources on our core strategic priorities, we have more work to do.”

The company’s shares, which lost roughly 60% of their value last year, were up about 2% in midday trading.

According to Wedbush analyst Moshe Katri, PayPal is attempting to strategically and financially position itself in anticipation of a slowdown in the economy.

The investment firm Great Hill Capital’s chairman and managing member, Thomas Hayes, told Reuters that,

At the time, corporate executives claimed that a difficult macroeconomic environment and sluggish e-commerce trends forced the company to be cautious with its forecast.
