POLL: Is Office Work Going Extinct?
Tesla workers were shocked this week when CEO Elon Musk emailed them an ultimatum:
Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week. Moreover, the office must be where your actual colleagues are located, not some remote pseudo-office. If you don’t show up, we will assume you have resigned.
Musk’s stance contradicts America’s growing trend of working from home.
Amazon, Apple, Alphabet and Meta all allow remote work in an effort to offset the so-called Great Resignation.
So Musk may be in for a rude awakening.
Breeze, an insurance company, recently surveyed Americans about their jobs.
The results showed that 65% of workers who can do their work fully online would take a 5% pay cut to keep working remotely.
With other companies offering flexible work schedules, Musk may find that working from the office is outdated.
Only time will tell.
But we’d like to know: Do you think office work is going extinct?
We’ll share the results in next Saturday’s edition.
