What good is a “brain” if not engaged in the advancement of the organization or employer who is paying you? In the end Musk will most likely by default and attrition clean house of the dead weight. He has already seen and is well aware that a certain % of the workforce is just that. This Guy
( MUSK ) is no pushover or a fool. Call him, label him, throw out your negative comments at him but in the end he is now running the show. And I am glad to see he has some semblance of rational about him. Good riddance to the thumb sucking crybabies. Let them exit and march head long into the George Soros camp and try and survive. George S. does not let you quit he takes his pound of flesh before he will open the exit door. A more money conscious fellow you will never meet. Musk is probably not a shining star, but he has a conscience, and he is smart and seemingly well balanced.
I wish him and his team good luck! We need more who will stand up against the radical LEFT.

I would want to know more facts. How long are they working now? what do they actually do?
what does “work harder” mean? It’s hard to say. Just like when the news says rail workers only get 1 sick day a year. There has got to be more to it then that. show me the their whole contract. I’m betting there are some other benefits in there that off set that.

Thank God for Elon standing up for conservative Americans! People live to disappoint. The republican party has many dedicated people to promote conservative values, but it’s mostly full of swamp creatures. We need to support a Convention of States.

349 people cited “brain drain”! Twitter may be experiencing a “drain” but it seems very doubtful it’s “brain” related.

There is no contract. When an employee decided it’s too much, that employee can give notice and leave the company. And find another job. Or vice versa. Just like real people have done all along.

Musk’s employees are aware of his methods. If they want to be on his payroll then work for it and don’t b*tch. No one is forcing them!

I am all for a strong work ethic. And I also think that working longer and harder should be compared to what the employees were already doing. I have not yet read (Albeit I am busy working and don’t have a lot of time to read everything about this matter.) what the employees work hours and job responsibilities were before the Musk directive. If they worked 20 hours a week in their pajamas and spent a lot of time in the “safe room” or playing video games to relax then Musk may have a point about asking them to work longer and harder.

These communists at Twitter were very comfortable while the CCP was guiding them but now they’re being held to a standard of free speech and no longer a democratic echo chamber, welcome to America!!!

When you are an employee you need to do your best and strive for excellence. That means working hard, and following the rules, laws and policies that apply. If they do not wish to comply they can leave willingly or be told to leave.

The work ethic issue is not just about COVID, but includes the initialed attitude that many current students are being taught.

Sounds like nearly every boss I ever worked for. Do the job, do your best. You are nearly never paid what you are worth, you are only paid what the job is worth. Want better pay, get a job that is worth more.

I agree with the sentiment, regardless of who said it. I’ve worked with companies in other countries and it’s readily apparent that the work ethic here has to improve. Big Labor, ‘gubment cheese and Biden phones’, along with replacing the family structure with entitlement and class warfare, have weakened our overall work ethic. The consequences are immense but no one in government has really assessed it.

If someone is paying you to work 8 hours give that person 8 hours. The deadbeats staying home and using Covid or any other lame a** excuse not to work don’t deserve to breath the same air I breath
you do whatever needs to be done to accomplish the job at hand
Best advice I ever heard : if you’re going to college go there to be something !
not like most of these liberals taking basket weaving 101 and then getting elected to a position like upchuck shummer or pilousie and work the system to get rich
Hell if they worked as hard for the country and the people instead of themselves we might not have a country as screwed up as those a**holes have made it

Let’s go back about 100 years and listen to the discussion about the lazy younger generation:

“I don’t care if they did go off to fight the Kaiser, now they want a minimum wage, a safe and healthy workplace, a 40 hour work week and to be able to collectively bargain to get what they want. That’s Communism.”

Although Elon Musk seems to be making all the right moves when it comes to Twitter, I can’t fully trust anyone who is pushing electric vehicles as strongly as Musk does. I suspect that Musk is a closet Liberal, and no Liberal can be trusted.

This Elon Musk / Twitter poll , the issues at the foundation of the whole matter, somehow reminded me of one of President Ronald Reagan’s favorite humorous stories about an American and a Russian discussing who had more freedom. The American said that there is more freedom in America than in Russia ,and as proof of that said that any American citizen could meet with the President and say ” Mr. President, I don’t like the way you are running our government ! ” The Russian replied by saying the same thing could be done in the Soviet Union, any Russian citizen could go to the Kremlin ,meet with the General Secretary and say ” Mr. General Secretary I don’t like the way the President of the United States is running the American government ! “

If you can’t make the company that you work for, show a profit, neither you, nor the company you work for, will be around for long. Elon is simply stating a fact that should be common sense 101. If the employees don’t like their job, or their supervision, maybe they should consider buying their own company, and find out the hard way what happens when you don’t produce.

I trust no one ..and, I trust nothing ..why in “God’s green earth” would I believe ANYTHING now?!?! I mean ..he sure “sounds good” — I don’t trust him, EITHER (WHY would I trust ANYTHING, at this point?!?!) ..sometimes, I think it’s “all planned out,” and they make it seem “real.” ..Again, I believe NOTHING (well, almost “nothing”) ..

Looks to me like they need to earn their money, not have all the luxuries at their job that has recently come out in the news. Many of us have had to work hard for what we have.

I couldn’t care less about Twitter, except that a lot of news organizations get their info there.

Of course, that means that I don’t put any faith in most news organizations.

Poll results are pretty lopsided. They should have been more so. AMAC members should value free speech and a good work ethic. The Uniparty in DC has created this problem. We have way too many bureaucrats, and they have been given too much power because politicians don’t want to take blame and make tough decisions that might cost them a vote.

LUV me some Elon, but Elon I’m afraid you are about 40 years too late. You aren’t going to find people today that committed. I used to spend my younger days mowing grass, shoveling snow, raking leaves, delivering new papers, you don’t see that gumption today!!! LET’S GO brandon!!!

Extremely refreshing to see prayers and supplications made to God regarding that the evil done in secret be revealed and unveiled being answered! That truth prevails over falsehood. Been at least 3 years in the petitioning. It’s not finished, more will be revealed so take heart. However, will the compromised Republican Party be up for the challenge to use this information to make a difference? Any of you who are the praying sort, lift these weak kneed Republican politicians up to God to be made strong in spine and will to do the right, honorable, and proper thing. These men and women are our representatives in our Constitutional Republic. The Reprobate Democrat Progressives say we are a “Threat to American Democracy” YOU BET WE ARE! The democracy they speak of is in fact a “Mobocracy”, where they are the Mob and they are in control and just look at what they have accomplished.

This is exactly what twitter and the country needs ( the open expression of free speech) without censorship. The corrupt liberal powers that be must have the light shined on their dark subversive agenda which they have been implementing for years. Hard work never harmed anyone and is the backbone of a free society. This old adage comes to mind ( if you can’t take the heat then get out of the kitchen). I’m sure mr. Musk will have many applications for the jobs from good hard working people.

Elon Musk seems to be doing the right thing with Twitter, but there are very powerful forces that want to destroy Twitter now that it is a free speech site like GAB.

I was reading down through some of the comments and read a post by “mist”. I believe mist is very accurate in that post. But I paused to think after reading traits of a good work ethic, that some people today may not know those, or agree with or posess those traits. Those are the most basic ideas of employment and a good employee that should not have to be discussed. There are other lists that could be discussed and striven for but this list……I’ve truely lived to long and I’m just 68. I am a stranger in this world and I’m looking forward to going home!

I know this may come as a shock to many people, but you don’t need any of these social media sites. Just because you have a cell phone doesn’t mean you need to be on these sites. By using them you are encouraging the leftist owners of these companies and actually supporting them. 40% of republicans did not bother to vote in the mid-term election, but they were probably all on these sites all day long, accomplishing nothing.
