eBay Wants Your Money But Won't Hire You: Report Shows Workforce is 2% Black, 4% Latino

From [HERE] eBay issued its 2016 Diversity and Inclusion Report yesterday, their first since the company spun off Paypal in 2015. 

The numbers are consistent with what we've seen from other large, global tech companies. No Blacks or Latinos allowed - but their money is good. Their total workforce is 52% white, 40% Asian, 4% Hispanic/Latinx, 2% black and 1% other or mixed race respectively. /react-text

And they’ve clearly got work to do.

Fortune recently obtained eBay's 2004, 2009, 2012 and 2013 diversity stats through a Freedom of Information Act request. And two more recent diversity reports, 2014 and 2015, were available online. 

They show that the company used to be more racially diverse, with black, Hispanic/Latinx, mixed race and other categories accounting for 15% of the workforce as recently as 2015.

The change happened fast. The report released yesterday shows those groups now account for 7% of the workforce.

The overall workforce stats in 2015 were as follows: 61% white, 24% Asian, 8% black, 5% Hispanic/Latinx, and 2% other and mixed race. [MORE]
