This one is hilarious. Apparently some employees at SpaceX were angered by Elon Musk’s un-PC comments and opinions, especially around the Twitter deal going on. So they circulated an open letter berating Musk for embarrassing them. Apparently they pressured other employees to sign the letter and some of these put-upon employees must have complained to management about being pressured. Because the letter drafters have been fired.
Essentially they wanted people to sign onto a letter that said, “We don’t like working for Elon Musk at a company owned by Elon Musk. Gee who would have thought that management would be unhappy with employees staging an insurrection against the boss. Shocking! I guess they figured that Elon would say, “You’re right. I’m stepping down as owner and CEO and let you HR flunkies run the company. I guess he didn’t get the memo.
A job is a privilege, not a right.
I was never “Given” a job – I’ve earned every one I ever had and I continue to earn it every day.
The wokerati needs to learn this. Elon’s action is a first lesson. Good on Musk for cutting the rot out as soon as it showed its face.
I have never been a model employee but whenever I thought I was working for a boss who was incompetent I assumed I would have to leave not him. And that’s worked well. I’m glad to see Elon Musk agrees. After all if he’s such a terrible boss they should be glad to leave him alone to fail.
What would you think the average age of the fired employees is? I’ll bet in the twenties. Only a group of people who have grown up with no exposure to reality would be that stupid. That’s a total inability to think even one step further. They don’t realize that Musk knows that if they are unpunished, it is woke chaos for Space-X?
On a personal note I wish there was more backstory. I’d love to hear the whining and sobbing from these gob-smacked imbeciles. In addition to the entertainment value I think it would make an object lesson to the desperately stupid on why the guy making out the checks deserves at least deference from those cashing the checks. If you don’t like your boss find a new boss before you shoot off your mouth.
