Production Over Safety at Tesla: “People are getting hurt every day”

Elon Musk, owner of SpaceX and Tesla is a seriously strange and driven guy. That can be a good thing in some circumstances and even amusing if it’s your next door neighbor or crazy uncle. But when you own a major car company, it can mean workers getting hurt or killed. Last May we wrote about a report chronicling Tesla’s poor safety record. And things apparently aren’t getting any better.

Thought for the Week

"On the week of Workers Memorial Day "We still have not reached the ultimate goal. We can analyze data and numbers but that doesn't change the horrific stories and the loss felt by loved ones and coworkers behind every single workplace fatality statistic.""
