The eccentric billionaire Elon Musk has once again struck, criticizing the Americans whom he considers lazy in comparison to the Chinese, who are real workers. In a major appearance at the Future of the Car summit in FinancialTimes Musk told the crowd that he thinks Chinese workers work harder than their American counterparts.

Last month, Tesla staff in China were forced to sleep on the job when production resumed after a three-week shutdown, according to Bloomberg.
