Elon Musk Admits Teleworking Is “Ethically Wrong”

Tesla founder and Twitter owner Elon Musk believes teleworking is a “morally wrong” issue. In an interview for the CNBC channel, the controversial billionaire showed his support for the return of employees of US technology companies to work face-to-face.

And it is that, for the South African tycoon, teleworking is like “Marie Antoinette’s false date”. Until the abolition of the monarchy in 1792, the Queen consort of France is credited with replying “Then let them eat cake”, when she was told that people were starving because there was no bread. In this sense, Musk has criticized people who are the “laptop class” who want to telework, while “the people who make your cars and cook your food” cannot. Is this ethical? Right? It’s a moral problem. People should get off their moral pedestal with the nonsense of working at home,” he said.

Does teleworking affect productivity?

With the COVID-19 pandemic, a new concept arose in the United States that sought to define a new social class: the laptop class, which includes all workers who can work from home and keep their jobs. Are. health or your standard of living. In the interview, the Tesla founder accused these employees of “living in La La Land”.

This is not the first time Musk has opposed working from home. It was only last summer that he warned his employees that they would have to spend at least 40 hours a week in the office. Now, does teleworking reduce productivity? The issue is a debate in American cities. In fact, the House of Representatives approved a law in February to “relieve the productivity problems arising from telecommuting.” Its abbreviation in English is SHOW UP. “Reveal” in Spanish.

The billionaire’s statements come a day after Hungarian-American George Soros’ investment fund announced he no longer owns Tesla shares, and was reprimanded by Musk, who compared him to X-comics villain Magneto. From Male. Soros acquired $16 million (about 14.7 million euros) worth of ownership through his fund’s shares of the electric vehicle maker.
