Tesla is streamlining its operations by regulating the hiring and layoffs of employees, as well as the size of their wages. In a situation of economic instability in the United States, the manufacturer must take the necessary steps to maintain a positive cash flow.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter on Saturday that the company's total headcount will increase over the next 12 months. He noted that the salaried worker count should remain “fairly flat.” This is quite logical, as the company has opened two new factories that are looking to increase their productivity as quickly as possible, so it needs thousands of new employees.

“Tesla will be reducing salaried headcount by 10%, as we have become overstaffed in many areas.
Note, this does not apply to anyone actually building cars, battery packs or installing solar.
Hourly headcount will increase.
Although journalists of various well-known media continue to manipulate information by creating clickbait headlines, the reality turns out to be completely different. Timely optimization of the company is a very important step that will allow the manufacturer to continue to develop qualitatively in a given direction and maintain a positive cash flow without spending where it is not needed.
