Yahoo Finance Live anchors discuss Snap requiring workers return to the office 80% of the time starting in February.
- Play the music. Time for Cut for Time. Three stories, 1 minute each. We start with this. Snap CEO Evan Spiegel announced his expectation for workers to get back to the office-- return to the office 80% of the time beginning in February, as the social media company looks to bounce back from its 20% staff reduction back in August.

- The printer runs way warmer here at the office than at Brad HQ, so--
- My printer doesn't even work at home.
- There's also paper here, so that's good. Yes.
