Tesla allegedly 'gutted' Model 3 delivery team with recent job cuts

Tesla allegedly 'gutted' Model 3 delivery team with recent job cuts

When Tesla laid off 7 percent of its full-time staff in January, it might have dealt a serious blow to one division in particular. Reuters sources claim Tesla dismissed 150 of the 230 Las Vegas workers involved in delivering Model 3 units to North America buyers. Reportedly, the cuts are a response to tapering demand -- there are "not enough deliveries" to justify having that many people on hand, one tipster said. There are other delivery people in other locations, but this would still represent a significant cut.
