In my hometown there was a huge cotton mill back in the day (Late 1800's to 1959) that was a major employer for many years.The housing market will be a nightmare soon.
Thanks for this summary. In comparison 10k quoted by Elon seems too high, I wonder if this includes SpaceX employees as well, Starship production is more labour intensive.Just for comparison
GM Arlington, TX plant: 5.75 million square feet(534,192 square meters) on 250 acres(101 hectares) - 5,332 employees - Three production shifts - UAW Local 276
- Yukon XL
- Escalade ESV
Toyota San Antonio,TX plant: 2 million square feet(185,806 square meters) on 2,000 acres(810 hectares) - 2,542 employees - Non-union
Tundra and Tacoma
Giga Austin plant : ~5 million square feet(464,515 square meters) ~10,000 employees - Union?
Cybertruck ,Semi, Model Y and Model 3, Batteries
I wonder where all the employees are going to park?
Any guesses on how many employees per shift?
Thanks for this summary. In comparison 10k quoted by Elon seems too high, I wonder if this includes SpaceX employees as well, Starship production is more labour intensive.
I doubt Giga Austin will produce in 2022 as many cars as Fremont is producing now.Tesla has 10k at Fremont. Austin is supposed to make even more units.
Yes, but the target number of units is going to try to be more than Fremont. Even if you lower the per-unit labor, if you raise the number of units...I was expecting Tesla to introduce new wire harnesses that require less human manipulation, guess that's not happening for Austin MY, fingers crossed for the CT.
