Martha Stewart is making her stance on remote work clear, and the 81-year-old says she’s on a “rampage” to get people back in the office.
Martha Stewart Says Remote Work Keeps The Job From Getting Done
The businesswoman spoke on the subject during a recently-published interview with Footwear News.
During the sit-down, Martha took it upon herself to straight-up declare, “You can’t possibly get everything done working three days a week in the office and two days remotely.”
She went on to throw France into the mix, as many people in the country famously take one month — typically August — off work.
“Look at the success of France with their stupid … you know, off for August, blah blah blah.”
Before moving on, she took a shot at France by declaring that it’s “not a very thriving country.”
Martha then questioned, “Should America go down the drain because people don’t want to go back to work?” Oop!

Of course, other wealthy celebrities share this sentiment about the work-from-home gang as well.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Tesla founder and former Twitter CEO Elon Musk demanded that his staff return to the office.
“Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers.”
Elon also pointed out, “The ‘office’ must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to the job duties.”

Once he started getting backlash on Twitter over how “coming into work in an antiquated concept,” Elon said his detractors “should pretend to work somewhere else.”

New York City Mayor Eric Adams was also a vocal opponent to working from home, as he decried the idea of “stay[ing] home in your pajamas all day” back in February 2022. However, he recently allowed many city employees to work remotely two days a week, per The Wall Street Journal.
