Janitors At Twitter Decided To Strike Over Other Employees Being Let Go, So Elon Musk Fired Them Too

Back in 1981, air traffic controllers went on strike and President Reagan fired over 11,000 of them.

Elon Musk recently took a page out of this book at Twitter, when janitors decided to strike because they were angry about other workers being let go.

Musk simply canceled their contract, firing them all. He simply doesn’t have any time for nonsense.

The Blaze reports:

Janitors’ union called a strike outside Twitter, so Elon Musk canceled its contract and fired the janitors

Janitors hired to clean at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, California, protested after 20 employees were fired, so the social media company bought by Elon Musk fired the rest of them.

Critics of Musk are outraged that he would fire the workers just weeks before Christmas.

“Our cleaning contractor at Twitter was told by Twitter that they are cutting the contract,” said Olga Miranda, union president for the janitors. “So we have about 48 families out of work. And it just so happens that it’s three weeks before Christmas.”

A representative from SEIU Local 87 told the New Republic that 20 janitors were told on Friday that they were fired with no notice and that they were fighting for wages, “benefits and job protections.”

By Monday, the union organized a strike with the rest of the janitors against the firings, saying the company was violating local cleaning regulations. They also said they were locked out of the building.

Musk is clearly not up for playing games.
