It's a trap! Only weaklings use designated sleeping areas. Hardcore people sleep at their desks.

We have four sleep pods at my workplace. But we call them bedrooms, because I work from home.

And Americans will put up with it.

But then, basically anyone outside of Western Europe would, if stories out of Asia and South America are to be believed.

I'd never work for the Muskrat or any other employer like that. You only pay me for set days and set hours. Piss off outside of that. If I'm expected to be available 24/7 on salary, then the pay better reflect that. Nebulous promises of PTO (that you're punished for taking) and "morale events" that amount to little more than a pizza party where they ordered only enough pizza for half the employees will not cut it.

In short: fark you, pay me. And leave me the fark alone outside of work hours.

When Microsoft bought Visio, they let some of us drones use the hq for office space. There were little "nap rooms", basically things a few feet wide with a bunk.  We laughed at the idea that anyone would sleep at work.

20 years later here we are.

The best part of waking up after falling asleep on your keyboard is the 'chiclet face' effect.

/Sadly, it's funny because it's true...

Silly people. Those are not for sleeping. Those are breeding pods for Musk to sire children.

In six months, you'll be sleeping on a mattress that's mostly dried tears and semen. No thanks.

At this point, anyone still willing to work for Musk deserves what they get.  It's not like there aren't other jobs available these days.  Quit and get a different job.

Late stage capitalism is a return to company towns.

Do I have to pay extra for that?

Back in the day, before Y2K, we used to wonder when our corporate overlords would rewire our pod farm with IVs and catheters.

If I learned anything from watching Grey's Anatomy it's that bedrooms in a workplace turn into nonstop sex pods.

Musk is just offering his remaining staff orgy rooms to keep them on-site. Which actually might cure the Incel problem he spreads wherever he goes. So it's not all bad.

I got caugh sleeping in the middle of my paper pushing a couple of times. I blame 80 degrees in our little corner of the building. That and an all you can eat sushi food coma. Pretty glorious actually...

So guess he will start paying them in doge coin to spend at the company store next. I hope people leave a nice steamer on it on their way out the door.

sensitive yet dangerous: "morale events" that amount to little more than a pizza party where they ordered only enough pizza for half the employees will not cut it.

Not for the tears.

CSB: I interviewed at Google in the before times and they gave me a tour of the building. The guy was very proud to tell me they provided all three meals, had an on-site gym with showers, a gaming area, and a sleeping area. So I asked how many hours per week he usually works and he said "we have good work life balance". That's totally not a giant red flag in a sea of red flags.

...doesn't that violate zoning laws or construction codes?

40 billion dollars spent to destroy one company.

Trump only spent $66 million of his "own" money/debt to destroy a whole country.

At least we'd have affordable housing

This whole Twitter thing is informative, because it shows how these company owners act with government regulations in place to restrict how they treat their workers. It isn't much of a stretch to imagine how much worse off the employees would be without any laws to protect them.

How much is the rent for the mandatory company barracks?

That's why you spin the mattress 180 degrees to put the tear part near the bottom and the semen part near the top

Back in the day you all loved nap rooms and catered meals.
