Could Three Quarters of eBay UK Staff Get the Axe?
Techcrunch UK is reporting; "eBay UK has today put three quarters of their UK staff on notice for redundancy, according to my sources. Although a spokesperson for eBay UK, which employs around 100 people, told The Times that “some people’s roles are at risk of redundancy” and would not say how many jobs or which departments are most at risk, my sources paint a black picture of what’s going on inside the UK office."
I can't imagine that eBay execs would make such a huge cut in the staff that manages the third largest eBay Marketplace, but these are strange times. Maybe John Donahoe needs to thin out the Senior Executive ranks because soon they won't have anybody below them to manage.
Just my 15%
