A former assembly worker says the Tesla Motors factory is full of racial discrimination


Some have taken Musk's email to mean that his employees should forgive racist abuse from coworkers.

I wanted to share with each of you directly what I have told the senior leadership in the past few days, which is that I expect to step down form my position here before the end of the month.

As Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) prepares to take on the semi-trucking market with an electric truck that has CEO Elon Musk setting out-of-this-world expectations.

Portions of the email appeared Monday in a civil lawsuit that alleges racial discrimination and harassment at the company. Now, the automaker has been slapped with a class-action complaint that claims Tesla is a "hotbed for racist behavior" across one of Tesla's factories.

The suit claims Vaughan was called the "n-word" by supervisors daily, that the human resources department failed to follow-up on his complaints, and that he was fired for "not having a positive attitude". And then, in October, Musk delayed the event date yet again so that Tesla could focus on Model 3 production, which has been lagging, and ramp up battery production for Puerto Rico.

The union and the worker denied that he had been paid by UAW. There was no mention of racial discrimination whatsoever. He did not give the car five stars.

Mr. Chanos is not alone in projecting rough sledding for the sector.

Tesla chief executive officer Elon Musk has been dropping hints regarding its plans to produce heavy trucks which can compete directly with heavy diesel-powered vehicles.

Aside from a silhouette image (above) and Musk's description of the truck as a "beast," little concrete information is available for Tesla's Semi.

Despite the production delays, the company has been among the most painful for short-sellers this year, with losses among funds that bet on its decline totaling more than $4 billion this year, according to S3 Partners, a financial analytics firm.
