"Tesla’s white-collar staff face a stark choice: return to the office like their colleagues on the assembly line—or start cleaning out their desks.

In a leaked email from Elon Musk sent on Tuesday titled “Remote work is no longer acceptable,” the polarizing centibillionaire said only in extreme cases where this was deemed impossible would he personally decide whether to reconsider his decree.

“Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla,” he wrote in an email shared by Tesla shareholder Sam Nissim.

Many proponents of working from home (WFH) argue it can improve quality of life. Yet there are also those that believe it can foster social inequality, warning it creates a two-class workforce in which yuppies enjoy all the advantages flexibility has to offer while blue-collar employees have none.

In a possible reference to Chinese staff building cars during 12-hour shifts while sleeping on the shop floor during a COVID lockdown, he added: “This is less than [what] we ask of factory workers.”"
