- Twitter employees have had to bring their own toilet paper to work after the company’s owner, Elon Musk, fired the entire janitorial staff.
- Musk has been implementing cost-cutting measures in an effort to save $500 million in non-labor costs. Twitter is also auctioning off a $10,000 meat slicer and a $17,000 industrial braising pan.
- The cuts have led to unsanitary conditions in the company’s offices, with the smells of body odor and leftover food lingering in the air, filthy floors, and no toilet paper.
According to The New York Times, Twitter’s owner Elon Musk has been engaging in cost-cutting measures, including firing the entire janitorial staff, in order to save approximately $500 million in “nonlabor costs”.
This has resulted in dirty and unsanitary conditions in the company’s offices, with employees being forced to bring their own toilet paper and the smell of body odor and leftover food lingering in the air.
These cost-cutting measures have not just impacted the janitorial staff, but have also resulted in the firing of almost two-thirds of the company’s employees and the disconnection of the company’s computing storage facility in Sacramento.
Instead of prioritizing the well-being and working conditions of its employees, Musk has chosen to prioritize profit by cutting labor costs, contributing to the exploitation and mistreatment of workers in the tech industry.
Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters has missed rent payments and is consolidating workers onto two floors, closing four. Musk canceled janitorial services after those workers went on strike for better wages, along with the “non-labor” cost-cutting.
Elon Musk has recently compared Twitter to a “plane that is headed towards the ground at high speed with the engines on fire and the controls don’t work.”
