Amazon has become a household word and one-stop-shop for almost any item one can think of. Not only does the massive e-commerce company have almost everything a person could possibly be looking for, it promises to deliver the products in record time. What gets lost in all of this is the people who are working to fill those orders in fulfillment centers in California and other locations under what some have described as less than optimum working conditions. Many injuries ultimately require workers to file for workers' compensation.
Tesla is a big name in California. It brings to mind new-age vehicles that run on clean electricity and pave the way to cleaner transportation in California and around the country in the 21st century and beyond. The factories for the new sedan, the Tesla 3, were meant to be a beacon of progress with the most automated assembly system in existence. Sadly, that has not happened, and the Fremont plant is instead the target of many safety investigations. Recent workplace injuries included one that resulted in a severed finger tip.
