Change has to come from the inside …
A boycott movement which registered more than 200,000 account deletions from employees, convinced Travis Kalanick, Uber’s CEO, to end his tenure at U.S. President Donald Trump’s economic advisory council. However, SpaceX and Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk has yet to be convinced as how why he should withdraw from the panel.
However, Musk has tweeted in tomorrow’s meeting of the advisory council, he along with others will “express our objections to the recent executive order on immigration and offer suggestions for changes to the policy.”
Although there have been reports of Tesla customers cancelling preorders due to Musk’s participation in the advisory council, these cancellations have however not received the kind of attention that was directed at Uber.
After all Musk’s participation makes sense because firstly his participation does not necessarily indicate agreement with the Administration’s move, and secondly by participating he can engage for “the greater good”.
Just two weeks into office, and there have already been a multitude of mass protests in response to the Trump Administrations move of tinkering with taxes.
