Tesla to lay off up to 3.5% of its employees

Tesla will separate 3 to 3.5% of its workforce in the coming months, company CEO Elon Musk confirmed on Tuesday. One in ten employees is affected, while the number of factory workers will gradually increase.

The electric car giant had nearly 100,000 employees at the start of the year. Tesla has changed its number of employees too quickly, the billionaire said in a video interview with the Qatar Economic Forum, adding that he was counting on a recession in the United States in the near future.


Mr. Musk was also questioned about his political convictions, he who had recently marked his preference for the Republicans while qualifying the Democrats as the party of the “hatred and division“.

On the subject of possible support for Donald Trump, in case the ex-president decides to run for a second term in 2024, the CEO of Tesla cautiously commented that he had not yet made his choice.
