They canned mostly sales staff, for cars you pick off a menu and don't need sales staff except for delivery. Not the first time they've done this, probably third or forth I've heard about.

The SolarCity turned Tesla plant never should have existed in the first place and were placeholder jobs that were heavily subsidized.

Definitely was not just in Buffalo. They fired a bunch of service techs and sales staff in Houston.

He had met the goals/milestones for that bonus and the dem libbie judge overstepping by interfering with a corporation. Just more dem overreach against one that they hate due to his purchasing twitter and stopping the cancellation of conservatives.

@#7 ... He had met the goals/milestones for that bonus ...

Is it bonus? I have not seen the word "bonus" used to describe the payment.

... the dem libbie judge overstepping by interfering with a corporation. ...

The Judge said the pay deal was unfair to shareholders. Why doyou think it is fair to shareholders? Please be specific. the Judge was.

... She found Tesla directors, who negotiated the deal, were "perhaps starry eyed" due to Mr Musk's "superstar appeal" and did not fully inform shareholders. ...

How is looking out for shareholders' interests interfering with a corporation?
