|Twitter employee catching 140 winks (Econ Times)|
Officials found two beds last month in the tech company’s eighth and ninth floor conference rooms after an investigation triggered by a Forbes report about workers sleeping in the office amid long work hours after Elon Musk’s takeover. Multiple people who read the story complained to the city, alleging the rooms were converted illegally.Speaking as one who used to work around the clock on mergers, audits, and strategic plans, I appreciated employers who made it more comfortable to sleep in the office (as they undoubtedly appreciated our efforts to complete projects on time).
Twitter could be subject to fines for having an improper permit, but that has not yet been determined. Officials want to conduct a final inspection if the permit is not revised and Twitter must remove the beds.
I'm glad I'm no longer working in a City that requires a permit to put a bed in an office but deems it perfectly fine to put a sleeping bag and tent on a sidewalk, and have $75,000 of social services delivered to boot.
