Looks like Etsy's stock fell and the CEO was fired today! https://techgossip.org/etsy-craters-14-after-announcing-its-ceo-is-stepping-down-and-job-cuts-are-coming/
As a fellow craft shop owner mentioned "KARMA" ....Strange how the article mentions a "faster execution" for the out going CEO. Really? do they plan on executing him?
8% of the workforce is getting fired-hopefully that will be the rude ones like Joey, you know who you are. So I wonder what new rule changes are on the table for the poor shop owners this time? Now we see why Etsy needs the extra fee money from forced transactions placed on Etsy merchants. It looks as though this company is being ruled by "might is right" protocol straight out of Brooklyn and has positioned itself as a direct sledge hammer on the artist crafty home maker population. I am sure they will initiate the "bankrupt buyout" money scam shortly.
Very happy I no longer have to deal with them. I have faith that as positive creative light beings we will one day soon create a new market system for us to sell our handmade wares for the benefit of the artist directly - without the rules of these parasite companies.
