Elon Musk is back in the news, and this time it’s not because of a Twitter shopping confusion. Tesla’s CEO sent an email to employees saying remote work was no longer acceptable. Anyone who does not want to spend at least 40 hours a week in the office should leave the company.

The information is in an email sent to workers that was eventually leaked. On Twitter, his favorite social network, Musk did not deny the information, saying only that “they have to pretend that they work elsewhere.”
Another requirement is that the work must be done in Tesla’s office associated with his duties, and not in a remote branch of the company. The supervisor also claims in an email that the required 40 hours per week is less than what is being charged to factory workers.
In the second post, Musk also says that he himself almost lived in a Tesla factory, which is why the company survived. “Obviously some companies don’t need it, but when was the last time they released a great new product? It was a long time ago,” he said in an email.
Musk believes that there may be exceptions, but they need to be assessed on an individual basis.
