  Tesla sacks 9% of its workforce: Elon Musk announces major job losses Tesla is to let go approximately nine per cent of its workforce , after the company’s chief executive officer, Elon Musk, said it needs to “reduce costs and become profitable”.Musk said jobs would be lost from Tesla’s “salaried population”, but promised “no production associates” will be let go. In an email released by Musk on Twitter, the Tesla co-founder said the cuts will “not affect our ability to meet Model 3  production targets in the coming months.

UAW says fired workers wore pro-union logos. The first cuts were reported by The Mercury News one week after CEO Elon Musk announced the Tesla Semi truck unveiling would be delayed nearly a month, in part to focus on the Model 3 “production hell” that has stifled production of its mainstream car.

Soon after Tesla fired hundreds of workers at its plant in Fremont, California, it managed to settle a problem with its German staff that could have been far, far worse. Elon Musk got a rude wake-up call when Tesla bought German firm Grohmann, which builds machines for car plants, earlier this year.

“It is the right thing for the company,” wrote Kevin Throop, a sales manager who had been at Tesla since 2014. He was replying to a tweet from Elon Musk announcing the termination of 9 percent of the workforce. “I don’t regret giving all I had and in a way bidding adieu is my last contribution.”

Elon Musk : Why Tesla Fired 700 Employees. Tesla employs 33,000 people. A 700-person cut—the number Musk cited Wednesday during Tesla ’s third-quarter earnings call—would mean Tesla dismissed about 2% of its workers .

Throop wasn’t the only newly unemployed Tesla worker to cheer on his former boss on Twitter. 

While it may not be unusual for people to leave a job with mixed emotions about a former employer, the praise emanating from Tesla's stands out. They're exiting a company that's been on a hiring tear at a time when the CEO swears the short sellers are going to be proven dead wrong for doubting its prospects for succeess.

The outpouring on Musk’s preferred platform for communication mirrors his crusading persona and Tesla’s overwhelming sense of mission. The company won’t be able to succeed in its goal—to get the world to transition to clean cars and battery-powered buildings—if it’s unable to put an an end to an era of regularly  burning through $1 billion dollars a quarter.

More than a week after he first announced it, Tesla founder and Chief Executive Elon Musk is still working on the anticipated plan. Tesla -watchers have been speculating about the plan since Musk first teased it on Twitter on July 10.

“The people thanking Elon for the opportunity to work there are authentic. It’s unprecedented,” said Gene Munster, a managing partner at venture capital firm Loup Ventures. “One of Tesla’s secret weapons is the shared vision of clean energy, as well as how much people believe in Elon Musk and his leadership. It’s a unique asset for Tesla.”

Throop, whose Twitter handle is @seekevinrun, started his Tesla career in Southern California: first as a product specialist, then as an owner adviser, and most recently as an enterprise sales manager for the Western U.S. and Canada. “People need to know that we need Tesla to succeed,” he said in response to questions about his message to Musk. “It’s the front lines in the fight against climate change.”

In an internal memo Tuesday, Musk stressed that the cuts largely focused on salaried workers and that no production associates were included, “so this will not affect our ability to meet Model 3 production targets in the coming months.” Tesla has struggled to produce the electric Model 3 sedan in high volumes and has yet to reach a 5,000-a-week target.
