WeWork reportedly planning to lay off thousands as it attempts to reverse its fortunes

  • WeWork is preparing to cut at least 4,000 jobs in a bid to achieve financial stability and those layoffs could be announced as early as this week, the New York Times reported.
  • As many as 6,000 employees could ultimately be laid off, one person told the Times.
  • In a memo to employees, WeWork Chairman Marcelo Claure confirmed layoffs were coming this week, but did not say how many.
  • Last week, WeWork told investors it lost $1.25 billion on revenue of $934 million in the third quarter — losses were up more than 150% from the same period a year ago.
