According to the note, Elon Musk says he is ready to examine the case of those who could not meet the minimum hour of attendance.

The billionaire also recalled that the 40 hours of weekly presence requested were "less than what we ask of workers in factories".

“The older you are, the more your presence should be visible.

There are of course companies that don't require this, but when was the last time they shipped a great new product?

It's been a long time,” he added.
