Musk’s Severance Scam: Court Rules He’s Off the Hook for $500 Million Owed to Ex-Twitter Staffers

    Published on:

    “Elon Musk, the self-proclaimed visionary and tyrant, just got away with a major victory in his latest attempt to crush his ex-employees. A federal judge in San Francisco ruled that X Corp, Musk’s personal piggy bank, doesn’t have to cough up severance packages to the thousands of Twitter employees he unceremoniously dumped following his 2022 takeover. What a joke!

    Musk, known for his lack of empathy, decided to cut costs by handing out paltry severance packages to his former employees, paying them off with a measly three months of pay, despite promises of up to six months. Because, let’s be real, who needs actual support or a safety net in today’s cutthroat economy, am I right?

    But hey, it’s not like these workers didn’t deserve it, right? I mean, they were lucky to be working for a visionary genius like Musk, who’s always prioritizing his own interests over human well-being. And who cares about ERISA protections when you’re a billionaire with enough wealth to fund your own private paradise?

    Meanwhile, the plaintiffs are left high and dry, estimating they’re owed upwards of $500 million in severance pay. Because, you know, a few thousand employees being ripped off isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

    But Musk’s not done yet! He’s still got another lawsuit on his hands, this time from Agrawal and three other former Twitter execs, who are seeking $128 million in severance payments. Because, allegedly, Musk reneged on a deal to provide these executives with the kind of compensation package they deserved after decades of service to the company.

    And don’t even get me started on the $1 million in severance payments that former senior employees at Twitter are demanding. Like, come on, these people probably should just be grateful for the experience of working under Musk’s toxic regime and the opportunity to write about it on their personal social media platforms.

    All in all, Musk’s latest victory is just a testament to the fact that when it comes to the 1%, all it takes is a few lawyerly tricks and a healthy dose of entitlement to get away with just about anything.”
