Novice iz Silicijeve doline

Elon Musk je razvpiti poslovnež, podjetnik, milijarder, tehnološki vizionar in inovator, človek velikih načrtov in ambicij, predsednik uprave in lastnik znanega podjetja Tesla, ki se ukvarja s proizvodnjo električnih avtomobilov. Medtem ko si želi Musk z lastno raketo poleteti na Mars, delavci v njegovi tovarni v Kaliforniji delajo do onemoglosti.

“I’ve seen people pass out, hit the floor like a pancake and smash their face open,” said Jonathan Galescu, a production technician at Tesla. “They just send us to work around him while he’s still lying on the floor.”

He was one of several workers who said they had seen co-workers collapse or be taken away in ambulances. “We had an associate on my line, he just kept working, kept working, kept working, next thing you know – he just fell on the ground,” said Mikey Catura, a worker on the battery pack line.

Richard Ortiz, another production worker, spoke admiringly of the high-tech shop floor. “It’s like you died and went to auto-worker heaven.” But he added: “Everything feels like the future but us.”
