    A billionaire calls employees who work from home “stupid bums” and generates controversy on the Internet

    Alan Sugar believes that people who work remotely should be paid less because they are saving travel costs.

    British billionaire Alan Sugar wrote on Monday a message on his Twitter account in which he called employees who work from home “stupid bums”, which generated controversy on the social network.

    Sugar reacted in such a way by citing a tweet written by journalist Andrew Pierce in which he reported that the UK Government will sell several offices that were left empty as a result of the implementation of remote work. “Stupid bums watching golf and tennis at home while they’re supposed to be working. We the taxpayers are paying. Return to the office or be fired“said the tycoon.

    Later, in another publication attacked a claim made on the TV show ‘Good Morning Britain’ that telecommuters should be paid more “to keep warm”. “Crap […] They should be paid less because they are saving travel costs,” said the man who is also a member of the House of Lords.

    “A large percentage of people who work from home are lazy idiots who liked the life created by the pandemic,” reads a third Tweet from Sugar. “What about the nurses, doctors, cleaners, restaurant staff, builders and decorators, taxi drivers and truck drivers who can’t work from home but provide a service to the lazy?”
