PayPal CEO Dan Schulman Announces Partnership with Time to Vote to Increase Voter Participation
Dan Schulman, President and CEO
The right to vote is essential to democracy. Yet, voter turnout in 2016 was the lowest it’s been in the last two decades. One reason is because people can’t get away from work.
PayPal wants to make sure no worker has to choose between voting and earning a paycheck. Along with Rose Marcario of Patagonia, my friend Chip Bergh of Levi Strauss & Co., and many other companies, we’re partnering with Time to Vote—a non-partisan coalition of companies dedicated to increasing voter participation in the 2020 general election on November 3.
As leaders, we have a responsibility to provide the time and resources for our employees to vote, alleviating a major barrier preventing many Americans from making their voices heard. I hope even more companies will join our efforts.
