well, not unexpected
I thought all multibillionares were evil 1%ers exploiting the masses.
We give Musk a LOT of free passes that no one else gets. Active and aggressive anti-union stance, no transparency other than tweets supposedly from The Man Himself, lots of reports of "issues" with management culture...stuff that deserves to be actually investigated for truth and if so, stomped out.
Problem is, well, its not just us little people who overlook "details" when too focused on the goal. those details could be human employees. Both SpaceX and Tesla have tons of details and Musk absolutely NEEDS management personnel he can trust to do everything right by both the objective AND the employees. Musk has had some bad luck with management choices in the past, like some of those dingbats in early Tesla days who he had to get rid of to get Roadsters made that didn't grenade their own transmissions, and we do him and his objective no favors by ignoring problems that these managers may be overlooking or even possibly actively creating.
Wouldve been better for SpaceX if Musk was aware and being criticised *before* a lawsuit needed to happen, so changes could be made, negative hype reduced and no lawyers getting rich off of others' suffering. He could change the Management to get things done better. Now he's doing it after a sh*tstorm and on-the-record negative court action which never looks good.
Rocket science is hard. Rocket personnel management, apparently is harder
