The richest man alive have declared it’s morally wrong to work from home
Americans billionaire and the world’s richest man alive Elon Musk, has made a controversial declaration about people working remotely. According to the businessman and Twitter CEO, “It’s morally wrong to work from home”.
In an interview with CNBC’s David Faber, the Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter CEO described people working remotely as “Laptop classes”. Buttressing that the issue extends beyond productivity concerns.
According to him, “I think that the whole notion of work from home is a bit like the fake Marie Antoinette quote ‘Let them easy cake’. Get off the goddamn moral high horse with the work-from-home bullsh#t”.
He continued that the Laptop class is living in a fantasy world thinking they’re better than others who go out and work. Meanwhile his statement has stirred a lot of controversial takes and the billionaire has been accused of misconception.
Adding that not all jobs require one to leave their home if they can get the job done anywhere they are. Coupled with the fact that since the pandemic a lot of companies adapted the work from home system. Which costs them less as long as employees are being productive and that’s where the main focus should be.
