Stock Options Decling

from the no-surprise-there dept

I doubt it’s a surprise to anyone, but it seems that fewer people in Silicon Valley own stock options anymore. This is a result of some factors that, even if you haven’t read the article, I’m sure you could come up with on your own. First of all, fewer people have jobs meaning they’re less likely to have options. The places that are giving out options are cutting back on who they give options to, and how many they’re giving. Also, plenty of people who used to work for tech companies that give out options have moved on to non-tech companies that don’t.
