Some asshole billionaire.

This is Vishal Garg.

He recently laid off over 900 workers - nearly 9% - of Better.com's workforce. He did so in the span of minutes in a Zoom call, almost three weeks before Christmas. He did this only days after the company received $750 million from it's backers, Aurora Acquisition Corp and Softbank. He reportedly accused his staff of "stealing" from colleagues and customers by being unproductive, and he has a history of verbally abusing his staff in emails with such accusations. But this isn't new. He accused his former best friend of stealing as well, and stated he was "going to staple him against a fucking wall and burn him alive."

And he has an estimated net worth of $4 billion dollars. He took home a $25 million dollar bonus in 2020. To put this in perspective, he could pay each of those 900 employees $80,000 a year for 25 years, and still not spend more than half his net worth.

In short, fuck Vishal Garg. Fuck billionaires. Fuck the system that allows employees to be laid off by the hundreds in minutes, while bosses collect multi-million dollar bonuses. That they feel no shame in this behavior is no coincidence. It's a hallmark of psychopathy.
