Jason Lee, DailyPay Founder & CEO joins the Yahoo Finance Live panel with the latest on the on-demand pay platform.
In today’s startup spotlight, we’re taking a look at the intense battle that businesses are currently finding themselves in for talent. As a refresher, right now, we’re sitting on what is a record amount of job openings here in the US. When we look at that, in a very intense battle to fill those openings and entice workers. Employers are not just upping what their employees are paid, but how they are paid with flexible new services.
And one of those services, DailyPay, lets users tap paychecks in real time so they don’t have to wait for payday to roll around. The company just closed a $175 million series D funding round. And for more on that, happy to welcome into our starting spotlight segment here, DailyPay’s founder and CEO Jason Lee joins us right now. And Jason, congrats on the round. Good to be chatting with you here. You work with some big names– McDonald’s, Kroger, and some other ones out there. But what are you seeing in terms of those companies and others trying to use your services to attract new talent?
