Tesla Workers Return To The Office After Elon’s Threats Only To Find Nowhere To Sit

Tesla Workers Return To The Office After Elon’s Threats Only To Find Nowhere To Sit

After receiving (potentially illegal) threats by electric car developer Tesla’s owner Elon Musk, the company’s employees made the decision to return to the office – only to find that there’s wasn’t enough space for them all!

Within a report by The Information it was said that Tesla workers who arrived at the company’s offices in Fremantle, California, were faced with severe desk shortages, no parking spaces and wi-fi connectivity issues.

Apparently when Elon fired off his threats, he failed to take into account that the number of workers at the company had doubled ever since the beginning of the pandemic when they decided to shut down their offices and allow people to work remotely. Based on data from The Information the amount of people employed by Tesla now exceeds 99,000, almost double what they had in 2019.

A lot of people who fronted up at the Fremantle location were unable to find a parking space for their cars, being forced to leave their vehicles at a local train station and transit to work.

When they finally made it to the office, a lot of them couldn’t even find a place to sit, as the company had reportedly changed some of the areas during the pandemic but they also had failed to take into account the large number of new hires.

But even for those lucky few that did find a place to sit, there were still significant problems as the wi-fi wasn’t working properly for most people around the Tesla building, creating serious issues for those who were trying to do their job.

It would appear that Tesla didn’t really take into consideration how much Elon Musk wants people to be working at the office, as they were incredibly ill-prepared for the sudden transition. However, recently the billionaire has become a bit more “flexible” on the matter, pointing out that those who produce “exceptional” results will still be given the option of working remotely.

It’s not exactly specified what Musk considers to be “exceptional”. Maybe if you come with your own internet connection or a table and chair. Who knows…

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
