Tesla’s long working hours, weekend shifts, compulsory overtime and strict deadlines leaves its workers stressed. Hundreds have experienced seizures, chest pains and shortness of breath while working. Some even faint, falling on their faces and hitting their heads on the floor so hard that they end up with cuts.
As of 2017, ambulances occasionally drove into Tesla factories to transport injured workers to a hospital. However, Tesla’s managers (who are often under pressure) never stopped the assembly lines to attend to injured people. They just told other employees to keep working while the injured person remained on the floor.
