    If it's believed that it applied to everybody who laid off, then those two represent a class.

    Any idea why SpaceX would suddenly not need 200 to 400 of its workers?

    Maybe because after review they decided that they weren't adding new value and they wanted to release them all at once to avoid scaring the ones they wanted to keep?

    Another former SpaceX employee sues over alleged labor law violations

    I was wondering why only two complaints.
    Now there are third but in another lawsuit.
