Tesla eyes big Fremont expansion, 3,100 jobs could be created


#21

Can Tesla move the factory to Arizona,Nevada or Texas? Bay Area might be too expensive to support a factory

This could have a huge impact on Tesla

Remember, Tesla got a lot of moola and incentives to reopen at the Nummi plant. Typical unions. Yeah, you were pretty darn happy when the jobs came back but I guess it is time for you to turn the knife a little bit? Hate unions. Useful and warranted back in the day but in this ultra competitive business environment it is a dinosaur that really needs to be killed off by a huge meteor. Look at BART and its unions. Pathetic. I remember years ago that BART had a work process rule that required two union workers to fix or maintenance a seat cushion or something pretty minor. Unbelievable…

3,000 more jobs, more traffic. But, I believe there would be some transfers. That is, some people somewhere would move to nearby cities, which in fact can become a better deal for them than for Fremont when it comes to real estate.
I know several people working for Tesla. Pretty soon I heard, they will stop manufacturing for 10 days. The workers will somehow pay for this time off. I don’t know the specificis. They are happy though, good company to work for.

But they need a union.:joy:

How much real demand for electric is there…Cheap gas, great hybrids thet get 60mpg and dwindling subsidies. .Will electric survive?..Bolt is doing poorly and S models are seeing slowing demand. .the 3 will just cannabalize the S demand…

Subsidies? States are already starting to charge an extra registration fee to electric cars. They didn’t think through giving incentives to electric car buyers. Now there’s more electric cars on the road, and they don’t pay gas taxes to help maintain the roads. Never trust the government to fix a problem. They can’t think more than 1 step ahead and always create more problems.
