Many are looking towards projects such as Tesla Motors' initiative to create electric cards to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels but the business practices of this firm are definitely not as clean as its technology.
About 90 percent of the firm's Metro Detroit branch were fired with a blog post, Jalopnik unveils:
Tesla notifies Detroit workers today they were laid off two days ago...today! In a sign of what this new Financiapocalypse might bring, employees in the Metro Detroit branch of electric car maker Tesla Motors were laid off via a blog post. Yesterday, we reported that Tesla would be cutting back and reorganizing, which included shutting down the office in Rochester Hills, near Detroit. Unfortunately, no one told the employees in Rochester Hills. Some of them logged on to find that they were now, according to their own website, obsolete. But it gets worse.
The remaining ten percent will need to move to San Jose, California at their own expense, if they want to keep their job.
Here's a piece of the blog post:
There will also be some headcount reduction due to consolidation of operations. In anticipation of moving vehicle engineering to our new HQ in San Jose, we are ramping down and will close our Rochester Hills office near Detroit. Good communication, tightly knit engineering and a common company culture are of paramount importance as Tesla grows.
