Tesla laying off 9 percent of workforce

Tesla is cutting nine percent of its workforce in an effort to achieve profitability, CEO Elon Musk announced in a note sent to employees that elaborated on a planned restructuring he publically announced in May.

Musk in the email thanked the employees leaving the company and said the individuals will receive compensation. Year-to-date, Tesla's headcount is up roughly 15%.

Tesla has already started to notify employees, a company spokesman said.

Nadal admits he thought he would have retired by now
That's when Nadal took charge, holding for a 5-4 lead, then breaking to take the set as Thiem made four unforced errors in a row. Nadal has won 17 Grand Slam singles titles, three short of Roger Federer , the tennis yin to his yang, who has won a record 20.

The layoffs at Elon Musk's electric auto company come as it tries to increase production of its Model 3 sedan and turn a quarterly profit this year.

It's not the first time Tesla has laid off workers.

As many as 9% of Tesla's workforce will be let go. I also want to emphasize that we are making this hard decision now so that we never have to do this again. Tesla isn't letting go any production associates, as the company is trying to ramp up Model 3 production.

Speculation increased after the Liverpool man had a strong game against Croatia at Anfield , a match in which Jesus struggled. However, it does not mean that fans and his Selecao teammates aren't thrilled and relieved to see him back.

The delays and higher costs have put Tesla into risky territory where it is rapidly running out of cash and investors have become nervous about lending the company more money.

Tesla shares rose 2.5 percent to $340.34 in afternoon trading, after reaching as high as $354.97 around noon.

At the start of April, the company's shares had fallen by around 35 percent from a peak hit last September but signs that it is on course to meet an output target of 5,000 Model 3 cars per week have wiped out nearly all of this year's losses. But Musk has promised an acceleration of Model 3 manufacturing, which will allow the company to bring in a lot more revenue. It can easily top $50,000 with options.
