Musk memo: "If you don't show up, we will assume you have resigned."

Elon Musk has ordered Tesla and SpaceX employees to work in the office full-time or quit their jobs.

On Tuesday, Musk sent two memos telling Tesla employees they must be in the office at least 40 hours per week or leave the company. "Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers," Musk wrote in a new memo circulating on Twitter, apparently first shared by Tesla stockholder and Full Self-Driving beta tester Sam Nissim. The email's subject line was "Remote work is no longer acceptble [sic]."

Musk seemed to confirm the emailed memo's authenticity. When asked to provide "any additional comment to people who think coming into work is an antiquated concept," Musk tweeted, "They should pretend to work somewhere else."

The first memo was sent by Musk to Tesla's "ExecStaff" email group on Tuesday. But it's not just executive staff who face the directive—a second leaked memo that delivered a similar ultimatum to all Tesla employees was sent by Musk on Tuesday night. The company-wide email was reported by Electrek and in the Tesla subreddit. Reuters subsequently reported that "two sources confirmed the authenticity of the email" sent to all Tesla employees.



I'm trying to figure out Why this is Controversial?

Get Woke, Go Broke: SpaceX Fires Employees Who Wrote A Letter Blasting Elon Musk’s ‘Behavior’ And ‘Values’

SpaceX employees circulated an open letter criticizing CEO Elon Musk for his “behavior in the public sphere.” Those employees now find themselves out of a job, according to a Friday report from The New York Times.

“Elon’s behavior in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us, particularly in recent weeks,” the letter, first obtained by The Verge, asserted. “As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX — every tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company.”
