Pandemic concerns have placed many counties and governing bodies under the microscope. As travel restrictions continue to apply for re-opening strategies from COVID-19 and coronavirus concern, there markets the opportunity for manufacturing companies and other regions of the industry to follow suit. Tesla has one of its major factories located within Alameda County in California. The county has been under the careful watch of the legislature that has prevented re-opening courses of action. Elon Musk defied these orders on Monday, placing his manufacturing mega-hub back open for business. Government officials were quick to act on the matter, placing preventative measures on the re-opening strategy. The result, a tyrannical rant on Twitter and multiple messages to President Donald Trump.
Musk took to social media to vent his frustration with local government, media, and other related sources. He placed heavy statements against these organizations, drawing outrage from his followers and creating head-to-head arguments with many different sources. Most of his outrage was chronicled on social media, via a conference with Joe Rogan, and during his weekly earnings reports. He utilized many different outlets, which ultimately called for President Trump to chime into the conversation. Musk criticized legislature and rulings saying that they defied their responsibilities in favor of a continued shutdown and stay-at-home order.Read More »
After gaining insight of the re-opening, the Alameda County officials were quick to shoot down the operation. Not long after the re-opening came the impending closure of the worksite. Officials stated that these operations were against placed recommendations of re-opening and defied the stay-at-home order that was placed for the country through the end of May. Following this closure was the beginning of the rampage for Musk. He sought every bit of support he could conjure and interjected whenever he felt the need to speak his mind. The garnished attention from his claims was the call for a compromise between sources.
Alameda County created a press release that stated all of the claims that Musk was making. Within this release was a placement order that would allow his manufacturing company to re-open for business, despite going against the order of operations for business re-opening. The County permitted Musk to enhance his operations, but there would be boundaries of concern that would have to be adhered to. The workers would have to continue to operate under terms of social distancing, keeping six feet apart during the work scene. There would also be officials that would be released for on-site viewing, ensuring that Musk and his workforce were adhering to placed measures of concern. Being watched under the careful eye of the legislature was the only compromise that would allow this operation to continue.
The aftermath would keep the manufacturing site open for work and operation. The workers would have to adhere to applied safety standards, ensuring that they would be doing their part to limit the spread of the virus. Musk has almost gone silent after all of this information was released for public viewing. He is no longer making drastic claims on his social media pages and he is no longer calling out individuals for their part in this process. The dust has seemed to settle with an agreement that will allow his company to enact a semi-complete operation. Bringing his workforce back to the drawing board has allowed him to refrain from making ludicrous claims and placing others under the microscope of his monetary worth.
