Employee Compensation, Spying on” and Safety Issues At Tesla
Tesla Factory Very Dangerous say Factory Workers and Former NUMMI workers!
Not only are the cars dangerous, the factory that makes the cars is dangerous. Workers report that they have had appendages cut off at the factory, been horribly burned by molten metal, been hit in the head by out of control robots, fallen off shaky platforms and other injuries. Current workers are stating this. In addition, former Fremont , California NUMMI workers, who were promised jobs by Tesla, but were replaced by H1B overseas workers, say that safety standards were dropped after Tesla took over. At first, it was thought to be sour grapes but the rash of accidents seem to bear this out. The new information about the battery toxicity and past fires at Tesla cause the workers even greater concern.
Another Tesla Factory Fire!
The Fremont, CA Fire Department has just responded to another Tesla factory fire where YET ANOTHER fire event has occurred, burning and hospitalizing 3 workers at once! At least one deformed for life.
WTF is up with these people!!!!
The Tesla cars AND the Factory AND the workers catch on fire
Here is the actual Tesla Factory on fire when a rumored mass battery fire went off in their own factory. That is why they keep their battery packs in a military blast chamber in Dec. of 2011 (see Link)
TESLA FACTORY FIRE PRESUMED TO BE COVERED UP BATTERY FIRE DISASTER Dec. 2011:
Peter T- (Many shots of this posted by many observers in Fremont, California)
Tesla employees ordered not to discuss and to refer all inquiries to PR Officer at Tesla.
Tesla fires Can’t be ignored no matter what the CEO says
Tesla Batteries Act Like Solid “rocket fuel” when they ignite!
As of 11/6/2013 Tesla had said there were only 3 fires, yet social media shows there were many more fires. Those other fires have been documented in photos and videos and Elon Musk has said he has tracking chips on all of the cars so Tesla had to have known about all of the other fires. The reality of the documentation and the statements from Tesla seem to clearly show a cover-up. Lithium ion in a metal box burns like solid rocket fuel when it gets going in a fire. Musk would have known this since he started SPACE X: A rocket company! (Which keeps having technical failures)

It was an idiotic move to use thousands of lithium ion consumer flashlight-type batteries, that were never made to be used in a car, to create an entire bed of toxic explosive material and put it just a hair breadth away from a surface that can puncture, explode and inflame it. That surface, the road, is trying to puncture, bump, and destroy the undercarriage, of every car, every inch of every mile of every road across the country. Also, the batteries are so close to almost all of the outside edges of the car, that puncture damage in a crash is certain. They decided to CHEAP OUT with the flashlight batteries yet they charge buyers insane amounts of money for a car with a growing list of technical failures. What were these people thinking?

Understanding Tesla’s Life Threatening Battery Decisions
SEEKING ALPHA- John Peterson
Nov 22 2013
In the last couple of months, electric cars from Tesla Motors (TSLA) have had three collision-related battery fires that were widely covered by the media. Last week, the NHTSA decided to conduct a formal investigation of these incidents. While Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk immediately went on the offensive arguing that Tesla’s BEVs have a lower fire risk than gasoline powered cars, the question an increasing number of investors are asking is “Why has Tesla had three battery fires in a fleet of 17,000 BEVs while Nissan hasn’t had any fires in its fleet of over 90,000 BEVs?” The answer is simple. Tesla’s battery decisions significantly increased battery risks for both the customer and the company. MORE…

Tesla Employees say Elon Musk Spies on them.. MORE>>>
Tesla hires hundreds of overseas Indian blogger shills to type “nice things” in blogs and news story comments to run a cover-up.
Per the comment above: “It isn’t because Tesla is creating domestic jobs. Tesla took the taxpayer money and hired H1B offshore workers to cheap out. They even posted ads on LinkedIn looking for H1B legal teams to suck in Armies of cheap offshore labor. “
The PR department at Tesla was told to work all this weekend so they called in a team of outsource contractors from India to Google every story with the words “tesla fire” in them and go type wonderful things about Tesla in the comment section of every article they find. Everybody knows that SOMO thinks Tesla is a load but these fake bloggers do not identify that they are Indian Outsource typers.
Our manager even implied that we should go online this weekend and “voice our support for Tesla” as we “don’t want the company to have any cash flow issues as that could affect paychecks”. In other words: “go home and write nice shit about Tesla or lose your jobs”.
T- @Tesla Motors, Fremont
Elon Musk hates unions. Fired many NUMMI union workers and replaced with H1-B overseas workers. Payback coming:

The Deadly Lithium ion Industry.
Few noticed when EnerSys, the world’s largest industrial battery manufacturer bought tiny ABSL on the tip of Scotland and redirected it away from vehicle traction batteries, aiming its various lithium-ion chemistries at military and aerospace applications not involving traction. Rather more have spotted, in the USA, the Chapter 11 demise of (Russian mobster owned?) EnerDel (using NCM and LMO cathodes) then, in March 2012, International Battery. International Battery, which surprised local officials when it abruptly closed its Upper Macungie plant, owes Pennsylvania more than $2 million, and state lawyers are initiating efforts to recover some of the debt. State officials are also in discussions with the company regarding a project for which International Battery received an $800,000 grant in 2010. That project has not been completed.
The DOE gave tens of millions of tax dollars, some say billions, to lithium ion battery companies who technical reports had already advised were in trouble? Why? Follow the money!
Vast numbers of lithium ion ex-factory workers are now dead or sick with fatal diseases. They make these batteries overseas because OSHA would never let them do any real volume in the U.S. because it kills and sickens workers!
Then came Valence Technology, in mid 2012,and now the big news that political football A123 Systems has only a few months’ money left having spent up to one billion dollars. The Chinese have now saved them at the last minute, almost wiping out the US investors and taking a company paid for by U.S. Taxpayer Dollars. So much for the US wrestling control of the traction battery business from the Koreans and Japanese who have invested larger sums even before the US got interested. The dominos will continue to fall, notably in the USA. Yep, Lithium ion is a GREAT investment!!!!!! Everybody in the know, knows that lithium ion is being dumped on the market by groups now trying to get rid of it since the real scientists realized that it is dangerous stuff to make, dangerous stuff to use and dangerous stuff to breath in a fire, of which there are many, many unreported fires.
Tesla’s big announcement with Panasonic about batteries is a DOMESTIC DUMPING DEAL! Panasonic will probably pay anybody to take them off of their hands but do we want to put them in American neighborhoods?
Follow the money folks!
DH- LAT (sources referenced- EdaTech, Washington Post, NYT)
If you look at all of the suspects mentioned in these articles and then you track their, or their families or trusts or Cayman funds, holdings in lithium ion related companies you will see that there is no possible doubt about what happened.
The really icky part is that federal staff who got to decide who got tax money, credits and waivers have these same conflicted holdings and career cross-overs so it looks pretty dirty.
