Elon Musk: "Retirement age in France is too low"

Elon Musk wrote on Twitter, responding to a user who railed against French President Emmanuel Macron, saying that the retirement age in France is too low.
The Twitter CEO also wrote that people have had enough of dictators who pretend to be democrats.

In late January, responding to a user who posted a video of protests in Lyon, Musk wrote: "Macron has taken a difficult but right action. The retirement age of 62 was set when the hope of life was shorter. It is impossible for a small number of workers to support a massive number of retirees."

Elon Musk could build his own city in Texas for his employees.

According to reports from some US media, Musk would have bought land not far from the state capital, Austin, to build his city. The city along the Colorado River should host the employees of his companies, thus facilitating their work and their lives also thanks to rents below market prices.

The city would be near Boring Co and SpaceX facilities under construction in Texas. Musk's idea would be to build at least 100 homes for employees of his companies in the area. Musk has it in him to rent houses to workers at prices well below the market, also offering them a Montessori school for at least 15 children.

The city should be called Snailbrook, inspired by the Boring Co mascot. The law in force in Texas provides that a city can be considered as such and be registered if it has at least 201 residents. At the moment no registration request has been filed with the state authorities but it is not excluded that Musk could do it at the last moment, trying to keep the secret for as long as possible.

Texas has long been Musk's favorite state who, after having lived in California for decades, has decided to leave the Golden State, home of too many rules and too many taxes. Musk is continuing to fire Twitter staff, even after confirming that the redundancies were over.

Twitter had stopped the layoffs in early January, but the internal labor force of the company has not undergone further layoffs after November 21, when Musk himself, in a speech in front of the few employees who remained at the San Francisco headquarters of the company, he had declared that the cuts to the staff were over.
