Let's be crystal clear;
Tesla NEVER lays anyone off, they FIRE THEM without cause. Tesla never calls former employees back to work, do they?!
That means Elon, the board, human resources, and most salaried employees loathe those they have fired for no reason other than Twitter lies that got Tesla fined $20,000,000. That 20 million could have saved a lot of jobs that employees were fired from doing for no legitimate reason - except a defunct board of directors, and a sorry excuse for a CEO that was saving face in an attempt to decieve investors in-order to remedy Tesla's negligent spending, and general lack of oversight.
I once thought Elon loved the little people. He's just a showoff. He bluffs his employees just like he exaggerates and perpetually misinforms Tesla shareholders.
