So what’s Musk trying to prove here?
- That he paid someone to do nothing for over a decade?
- That he is a power-tripper who likes to play games like sending someone away for two weeks to ‘evaluate’ their position?
- That he’s a stingy bastard who looked down on someone for something that he obviously considered necessary for 12 years, and who thought she should just mind her lowly place and not want a pay raise?
- Or that he’s just a dick, because ding ding ding, that one sounds like the winner.
Elon Musk is a dick. You can find endless stories that demonstrate this. His fanboys try to excuse it as him being some sort of ‘autistic genius,’ but I’d argue that he’s neither. He’s just an effective businessman who is not above doing sleazy things as a business man.
Is anyone surprised that she didn’t come back for a different role in the company? No way in hell I’d return to work for an egomaniac who played mind games, reacted like a little bitch when asked to give a pay raise, and decided that her job was worthless after having her work it for 12 years. Fuck him.
