Some companies are willing to roll the dice on potentially ambiguous laws; or on law-breaking they doubt anyone will notice; but I've rarely heard of a company breaking 100% clear laws in ways they know are guaranteed to immediately be on the front page of newspapers.

I suspect Twitter feels they have an answer to this complaint. For example, and I have no idea if they are doing this, but if they provided at least 60 days severance to every affected employee would that satisfy the WARN act requirements?

I think he should've at least given a month long notice so there's plenty of time to "offboard," re-organize, and give people time to find a new job. Problem is that doing that may put it at risk of sabotage, violence, etc. It's a complicated situation.
If you check the numbers, Twitter was a disaster bleeding money endlessly. This was 100% necessary and overdue.
I'm not so sure it was a disaster because of the employees. To me, the basic principle of it was fundamentally flawed from the start.

Dude the guy is a billionaire and knows what he is doing. He has been successful in all his companies and products.

And to make matters even more funny, most "woke" and left people who all want green energy drive his cars!!!! The Irony of the hate on this man from the left side is hilarious.
I can't help it if people continually drink his cool-aid. And I would not drive one of his cars if he gave me one. :rolleyes:

I'm sorry for the ones fired, but more sorry for the ones not. They will have to live with new owner.
Can't get that picture with Musk and the sink out of my head.
And that was the entire purpose of that blatantly obvious publicity stunt. (Well, other than to allow Musk the opportunity to put his, "paranoid delusions of godhood", on public display).

It just depends if you're a Musk supporter or detractor, whether it gives you sweet dreams, or night terrors. :eek::heart_eyes:

Yes this is possible within the WARN act. Also nothing will happen, the same thing they did with Tesla they will do here, the court will just bounce it back to the workers and tell them they have to seek private arbitration rather than court.

I have to admit, his toy flamethrowers were an instant success.

OTOH, Tesla lost big money for years, but the stock market boosted his supposed wealth beyond measure. Oh well, if our currency is "fiat money", why shouldn't we expect Musk's wealth isn't cut from the same cloth?

Kind of like "a threat to democracy". The true threat comes from those that espouse this lie.

"Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty."
I mean because everything you "believe", is the "truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth", no matter what. Am I right, or am I right? Or will you accuse of being left for saying that?

I don't like, hate or have dreams with this man, but the circus that comes with him it's just too much to handle sometimes.

I don't understand how anyone could be a fan of Elon Musk. He's the same entitled prick that I always took him for. It's pathetic how many people worship wealth.
Oh, that's easy. It's practically inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty.

"Send us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, so ploddingly stupid and easily led, that they may vicariously live through the accomplishments of Musk, and psychopaths just like him"..

The woke crowd was all to happy to see unvacinnated employees fired en masse

Now it isn't so fun, is it?

Some people were fired because they didn't adhere to their companies' policies during a pandemic.

Some people were fired because that was the only way Twitter would survive long term.

I can understand why the decisions were made in both cases, but the two scenarios literally have nothing to do with each other. Why does everything have to be a culture war?

Your claim implies the rest of us don't care about "other humans". Our care has NOTHING to do with the faux principals of wokism. Most of us to the right prefer to judge others by the content of their character and not by a person's superficial looks.
And then you ignore that judgement of character completely and still vote red. Ammirite?
