Elon Musk says Twitter spend $13 million for food service at their SF headquarters
Elon Musk and Tracy Hawkins, the company’s former vice president of work transformation, got into an altercation on Sunday on the subject of employee lunches.
Two weeks after Elon Musk finished buying Twitter, the significant changes at the firm are still the subject of debates and contradictions. Elon Musk and Tracy Hawkins, the company’s former vice president of work transformation, got into an altercation on Sunday on the subject of employee lunches. Notably, Ms. Hawkins managed the Twitter food programme up until a week ago. She mentioned in a post that Twitter paid between $20 and $25 per day per employee, which allowed staff to work through lunch and meetings. Elon Musk lied, according to Hawkins, when he said that hardly anyone attended work and that the average cost of a lunch served over the previous year was more than $400.
She Tweeted, ”This is a lie. I ran this program up until a week ago when I resigned because I didn’t want to work for @elonmusk For breakfast & lunch we spent $20-$25 a day per person. This enabled employees to work thru lunchtime & mtgs. Attendance was anything from 20-50% in the offices.”
Replying to her tweet, Musk said that Twitter spends $13 million a year on food service at its San Francisco headquarters. Debunking the former employee’s claims, Musk tweeted, ”False. Twitter spends $13M/year on food service for SF HQ. Badge in records shows peak occupancy was 25%, average occupancy below 10%. There are more people preparing breakfast than eating breakfast. They don’t even bother serving dinner, because there is no one in the building.
Elon Musk has made the observation that more people prepare breakfast than actually eat it. The majority of residents are 25%, he continued, while the average resident makes up less than 10%.
The entire situation is related to a New York Times piece that claimed the Tesla CEO had stopped providing free lunches to Twitter staff.
