Elon Musk rips remote work as ‘bulls–t’ and ‘morally wrong’; CEO blames remote workers for ‘slow’ economy: ‘This generation is just selfish’, and other C-Virus related stories

Elon Musk rips remote work as ‘bulls–t’ and ‘morally wrong’:
Tesla CEO Elon Musk lambasted remote working as “bulls–t” and “morally wrong” in his latest round of criticism against the employment practice that defined the pandemic era.
Musk, one of the richest people in the world, referred to Silicon Valley’s tech workers as the “laptop classes living in la-la-land,” in an interview with CNBC’s David Faber on Tuesday.
He told Faber he believes working in the office boosts productivity — and that employees who refused to return to an in-person setting after COVID-19 restrictions ended need to “get off their moral high horse” and get back to work like everyone else.
“The whole work-from-home thing, it’s sort of like, I think it’s, like, there are some exceptions, but I kind of think that the whole notion of work-from-home is a bit like, you know, the fake Marie Antoinette quote, ‘Let them eat cake,'” Musk said in the wide-ranging interview.
“It’s like, it’s like really? You’re gonna work from home and you’re gonna make everyone else who made your car come work in the factory? You’re gonna make people who make your food that gets delivered – they can’t work from home? The people that come fix your house? They can’t work from home, but you can? Does that seem morally right? That’s messed up.” --->READ MORE HERE
CEO blames remote workers for ‘slow’ economy: ‘This generation is just selfish’:
A high-powered businesswoman has slammed “selfish” young workers for refusing to return to offices following the end of the COVID pandemic.
Nicole Duncan, who serves as CEO and Managing Director of CR Commercial Property Group in Sydney, Australia, called in to a commercial radio station on Monday saying long commutes were no excuse for staying home and working remotely.
“This generation is just selfish,” Duncan told the 2GB Mornings program, according to
The no-nonsense boss, who describes herself as “passionate about people returning to work,” said she spent years schlepping to the office on public transport and believes millennials and Gen Z workers should do the same.
“In our younger days we caught trains, buses, ferries to get to work,” Duncan, who did not disclose her age, declared. “Yes it did take two or three hours, but you’ve got to be in the office.”
The CEO said the failure of white-collar workers to come back to the office had been disastrous for Sydney’s metro area, although she didn’t provide stats that proved it was just young workers who were reluctant to return.
“Hotels are suffering … there’s less business travel, they do it all on (Microsoft) Teams … cleaners, people who make your coffee, lunches, all of those sorts of things,” she stated. --->READ MORE HERE
