  • Here’s Why Elon Musk Holds the Secret to Productivity Gains

A former employee, who spoke anonymously said: 'Elon's worst trait by far, in my opinion, is a complete lack of loyalty or human connection. This included caring about its own employees' safety and health, according to a report in mercurynew.com.

Other employees described stress injuries associated with long work shifts. Musk spoke with The Guardian recently to discuss the ongoing controversy over working conditions at its Fremont factory.

And things don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon - Musk said past year that he plans to make 500,000 cars in 2018, nearly a 500 percent increase from 2016. He said most workers earn between $17 and $21 an hour, living in the highest cost of living in the USA, while the average auto worker earns $25.58 an hour.

Kalanick wasn't aware that Tesla was already working on autonomous vehicle tech, even though it had unveiled its "Autopilot" driving assistant hardware.

The underground sled concept seemed like a distant dream when it was revealed last month, but now the company has outlined a plan to make the transportation solution viable. But in the production process itself there essentially would be no people. And there's clearly a swell of pride to be had working in the factory.

That is, of course, no defense for troubling working standards.

Tesla has plans to ramp production to 500,000 vehicles by the end of 2018, up almost 500% from current production rates. The factory floor was fueled by candy bars and energy drinks supplied by managers, Galescu said.

Tesla says the tempered glass tiles let light reach the solar cells embedded within them but can take a hit from a hailstone traveling 100 miles per hour.

The piece certainly does a good job of spinning many of its interviews with factory workers to make things sound pretty grim.

Musk said the company continues to improve its safety record.

When Elon Musk announced on Twitter he was starting a new venture called The Boring Company to solve traffic woes, most wondered how serious he really was.

"This is not some situation where, for example, we are just greedy capitalists who made a decision to skimp on safety in order to have more profits and dividends and that kind of thing", he continued. And how do we survive? One worker says that having a job there is "like you died and went to auto-worker heaven", while another feels like the organization is "changing the world". Kalanick offered another idea: Instead of paying bankers 3 percent of the money raised, the company could donate the fees to charity. Among other claims, Lambert said the company failed to properly rotate his position on the production line, leading to a back injury a year ago. On top of it, there was no rotation for three months. Tesla disputed several of the claims in the suit.

Since February, workers in the factory have raised alarm bells publicly and coordinated with the United Automobile Workers union to bring attention to safety.
