As Crisis Deepens, Tesla Rescinds Job Offers to People Who’d Already Accepted Them

Posted by in categories: economics, Elon Musk, robotics/AI

After announcing at the beginning of the month that the company would be cutting 10 percent of its workforce due to CEO Elon Musks’s “bad feeling about the economy, Tesla’s job slash is in full swing. According to Insider, many newer employees — including workers who had not even begun their newly-accepted positions just yet — are bearing the brunt of the mass layoffs.

“Damn, talk about a gut punch,” wrote Iain Abshier, a brand-new Tesla recruiter, in a LinkedIn post last week. “Friday afternoon I was included in the Tesla layoffs after just two weeks of work.”

It’s worth noting that these cuts come amid a recall investigation into Tesla’s controversial Autopilot technology, not to mention reports of widespread braking issues and the CEO’s recent lament over supply chain issues — leaving Tesla’s long term viability more ambiguous than it’s been in years, with the brunt of the consequences coming down on the company’s labor force.
