MADRID, 17 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Billionaire Elon Musk, owner of Twitter and CEO of companies such as Tesla or SpaceX, has harshly criticized teleworking, which he suppressed on the social network since its acquisition last fall, even assuring that it is a "morally wrong" issue. ".
In an interview with the 'CNBC' chain, the businessman has defended that the whole notion of teleworking "is a bit like the false quote from Marie Antoinette, 'Let them eat cake'" when referring to the fact that other workers cannot enjoy it and must go to his post daily.
In this sense, he has criticized that those whom he has referred to as "the laptop class" want to telework, while "people who have to go to the factory, prepare your food, or can repair your house cannot work in remote".
"The laptop classes live in 'La-la-land', but the people who do all the things they consume have to go to their jobs (...) It is no longer just a question of productivity, but I think that It's morally wrong," he said.
On the other hand, although Musk has assured that he works seven days a week, the businessman has stressed that he does not ask others to complete work weeks like his, but to spend at least 40 hours a week in the office.
