Electric car company Tesla is moving forward with plans to lay off up to ten percent of its salaried workers
Tesla CEO Elon Musk provided details of the move at the Qatar Economic Forum on Tuesday, where he said the staff will be laid off over the next three months in order to grow the company's hourly workforce.
According to Musk, the cuts make up about 3 to 3.5-percent of the total workforce.
He added that in a year from now the company's workforce will be bigger than today's figures.
This year Tesla has opened two new factories in Germany and Texas.
