Twitter CEO Elon Musk slammed the so-called “laptop class” during an interview this week for being on a moral high horse, saying that everyone needed to go back to work for moral and productivity reasons.
Musk made the remarks during a CNBC interview with David Faber while discussing whether the company will be hiring new people again after substantial layoffs and his recent hiring of a new CEO.
“I’m a big believer that people are more productive when they’re in person,” he said. “It’s like, really, you’re gonna work from home and you’re gonna make everyone else who made your car come work at the factory? You’re gonna make the people who make your food that gets delivered that they can’t work from home? That, you know, the people that come fix your house; they can’t work from home? But you can. Does that seemed morally right? That’s messed up.”
Musk said that he did see the issue as a moral issue.
“It’s a productivity issue, but it’s also a moral issue,” he said. “You also get off the god-d*** moral high horse with the work from home bulls***. Because they’re asking everyone else to not work from home while they do. It’s wrong.”
“The laptop class is living in la la land, okay,” he added. “But as I said, the — you can’t, but look at the cars, are people working from home here? Of course not. So people were building cars, servicing the cars, building houses, fixing houses, making the food, making all the things that people consume. It’s messed up to assume that yes, they have to go to work, but you don’t. How is that — that is, it’s not just a productivity thing. I think it’s morally wrong.”
